Broccoli-Ham Soup

11/23/07 | by alvaro [mail] | Categories: Appetizers

About a year ago, I started saving all my left over veggie parts. Alison does not like the broccoli stalks, so there was at least 1.5 gallons of those. About a quart of asparagus but ends, 1/2 a quart of long green onion green ends, 1/2 quart of anise. I also saved misc things, like 1/4 can of canned carrots, 1/4 can of beans and even a fair amount of blood from a cow tenderloin! I even found a nice chunk of ham from the last holiday season. Yum. Oh and while I was at it, I went to the front of the house and used a decoration (small pumpkin) in it too. There is only one thing you can do with such an varied array of junk - soup!

So here it is:

Broccoli Ham Soup

I added the junk to water. Let water boil. Threw out most of it, then took the good stuff and put it in the blender. I left 1/2 the pumpkin and the meat pieces whole. Towards the end I decided it didn’t have enough flavor, so I sautéed 1/2 an onion in olive oil, then when translucent added mashed up garlic. I put this into the soup then back into the bender to fully incorporate it. This is an easy fix for any bland soup!

Here is a list of stuff that is in the soup.

Freezer:
broccoli stalks
long green onion stalks
celery
anise
asparagus
1/4 can of carrots
1/4 can of navy beans
1/8 quart blood
Unidentified Cow Part
chunk of holiday ham

Fresh:
1/2 small pumpkin
1/2 onion
4 cloves of garlic
chicken stock

It’s pretty yummy. Tastes similar to a pea-ham soup!
