Thursday’s Soup and Friday’s Drink

Too busy too post yesterday, but not too busy to throw something together in the blender.  At lunch time, the plan was basically make sandwiches or fend for yourself, and fending for yourself seemed like a good excuse to experiement with the blender.  I threw a bunch of stuff in the blender and called it soup:

Spicy Tomato Soup (★★☆☆☆)

¾ cup of tomato puree
¼ onion
½ romaine lettuce heart
a handful of mustard greens
1 slice of munster cheese
several sprigs of cilantro
dash of oregano
dash of ground cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
dash of cumin
1 cardamom seed
hot water (to desired consistency)
pepper (to taste)
salt (to taste)

Blend everything but the hot water, then add hot water for desired consistency, run on high until you reach the desired temperature, and salt and pepper to taste.

Again, it was better than the score might suggest, but I feel like there’s definitely room for experimenting and improving on it.

Today, as part of my breakfast, I threw together the following, which was pretty good:

Icy Hot Green Smoothy (★★★☆☆)

½ cup of tomato puree
¼ romaine lettuce heart
a handful of mustard greens
several sprigs of cilantro
1 fresh Jonamac apple, quartered with seeds and stem removed
lots of ice cubes

Blend everything but the ice cubes, and then add ice cubes until it has a thick, icy consistency.

This is definitely an improvement (in my mind) over the Spicy Mustard Green Smoothie (★★☆☆☆) that I made earlier.  It’s pretty good.

And, like most days, I made a Banana Milk (★★★★★) yesterday and today. 🙂
