Today's harvest soup
The flavor of this soup came from a pound of breakfast sausage I had. I am still not buying groceries (It has been a month and a half now), so I am using what I have. The pot I used was a 10 quart one, so you can imagine how spread out the meat is. My bowl had one piece! :)
I sauteed the meat and onions together, then added some chopped garlic cloves. To that I added a bunch of water and then started throwing in the chopped veggies. I even put in oatmeal that was left over from breakfast and some leftover chili. The veggies I added you can see in the picture are squash, potatoes, beets, tomatoes, more squash, and garlic. The spices I added were Italian seasoning and Herbamare.
This soup turned out way yummy. Next time I would put in less water though. The water in the veggies add extra water to what I already put in. I served this soup with rice that I cooked in butter, salt and garlic. A healthier version would be to use coconut oil or olive oil instead of the butter.
