I went straight from a post-Phish road trip hangover to some kind of head cold. That’s not ideal, since this weekend is Candler Park Fall Fest. Obviously, intense soup therapy was in order!
Since we’d just gotten back from a road trip, the cupboard was pretty bare, which meant we didn’t have the makings for Get Well Soup. This was sort of a cobbled together situation, so you can definitely use whatever veggies you have on hand.
In a large crock pot combine:
4T miso paste (whatever sort you like! Broth paste would be fine, too, just check the package to see how much you need for 4c of broth)
2T ginger, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
5 or 6 turnips, greens included, chopped
1/2 lb green beans, ends snapped off and cut into bite sized pieces
5 scallions, chopped
your favorite hot sauce, to taste
Turn the crock pot to high, and cook the veggies for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally, until the turnips are nice and soft.
Serve piping hot, and feel better soon!
