You guys, this soup was soooooo good. I'm still telling him what a great idea it was. And now I want to make it again asap.
Here's The Kid's farmer's market inspired soup.
Farmer's Market Tortellini Soup
1/2 a yellow onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, three sliced, three minced
1 bunch chard, chopped, stems and leaves divided
1/2 large zucchini, cubed
2 cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes with juice (fresh works too)
Rind from a hard cheese (I always keep my cheese rinds for soups)
8 cups veggie broth
9 oz fresh cheese tortellini
Parmesan for serving
In a large stock pot, saute your onions and chard stems until softened. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and the sliced pieces are starting to brown.
Add garbanzo beans, tomatoes, chard leaves, cheese rind, and broth. Let simmer for 15 minutes or so, to let the flavors combine.
Bring to a slow boil and add the zucchini and noodles. Cook until noodles are done.
Serve with parmesan cheese on top.
We had ours with an amazing loaf of bread from the market, slices of Olympic Provisions sopressata, and a green salad. So, so good.
Here's dinner in my bowl:
You guys, the counter installers will be here at 8am tomorrow morning.
I'm void of all outward emotions, but I'm squealing on the inside.
If I had an Instagram account, I'd be blowin' it up.
But I don't.
I might just be giving sneak peak pictures on my Facebook page, though.
Please see my sidebar for the parties I link up to.
