It has been so hot, I have been using the bbq to cook some veggies. I got some asparagus, wrapped it in foil after adding some oil and seasonings….it was ummm ummm good, but I only ate the top 2/3’s , so I had these tougher stalks…did I throw them away….oh Hell No!
I wrapped them back up and put them in the fridge while I thought of what to do with them 🙂
Then the next day I cooked mushrooms, corn and roasted tomatoes on the bbq…..yea, that is some good eats there!
But I had some leftover tomatoes and corn, so I put those in the fridge while my I tried to figure out what to do with them.
So, HA, I got out the asparagus and one of the tomatoes (which YES where from my garden) and added a little broth and blended them up, but them in a pan and started to simmer them.
I then made a roux of broth, butter, milk and whole wheat flour, yes I started with just butter and flour but it got pasty so I added the milk and broth to smooth things out…
Then I added that to my soup, and then I cut the corn OFF the cob and cut up in chucks another tomato (from my garden, yes I AM proud of myself) and added that to the soup.
And now I have a wonderful, flavorful soup, full of veggie goodness and good for me!
