Frugal Meals: Veggie Soup

I realized I had a some veggies that were about to go bad on me. I don’t like wasting food, especially in the predicament I currently find myself in, so I thought hey…lets throw them all in a pot and see what happens!

I chopped up some carrots, onion, garlic, and asparagus and opened a can of chickpeas to round it all out.

Then I sauteed them all in a pot. Onions first, then carrots, then the asparagus, and the garlic was last because garlic burns so easily. I then added salt, pepper, dill, and rosemary. Oh, and a touch of turmeric.

Then I put this baby in there. I let it boil then simmered for about 15 minutes.

Then I had a soup that lasted me a few days, and it was healthy!

It’s been tough being unemployed. I’ve been a little afraid to put myself back out there, while being even more terrified of the coming months. Will I have enough money to keep this roof over my head? To keep my power on? My internet? It’s rough trying to stay positive in a time like this, but it’s times like these that positivity is one of the most essential tools to have.

In order to keep myself sane, I’ve been playing around with creative ideas. I’m going to try and integrate this blog with my Etsy shop, along with another idea I have that is in the early stages of development.

So…keep hanging out with me, perhaps you’ll see some cool stuff!

Thanks everyone, much love!
