I deem this recipe New Year Vegetable Soup. Why? Because I may have over indulged at Christmas. Because I may have eaten cookies and pie and cake for breakfast multiple mornings. Because I just can’t resist New England fried clams. And because now my jeans feel tight and I feel like I should only eat vegetables for at least a week. This soup is full of veggies, fortified with rich vegetable stock and spices. Next time I would stir in some hearty greens as well. It is kind of like a detox soup for me right now, but will soon become a staple because it is so low in points. Anyone else feeling this way? How do you clean up after the holidays?
