I’m back at home for the week. That means stacks of laundry, cleaning floors and putting away winter clothes. Yay!
Sudden rain made me think – SOUP!
I dug around in the pantry and freezer and this is what I came up with:
- Olive oil
- 1/2 cup red bell peppers – cubed
- 1/2 cup green bell peppers – cubed
- Lots of chopped garlic
- 2 whole star anise seed pods (shhhhhh! This is the secret ingredient!)
- 28 oz diced tomatoes
- 32 oz chicken broth
- 1 small bullion cube
- Whole lot of green onions – chopped
Saute first 5 items
Add tomatoes and simmer
Add broth & bullion cube
Simmer about 30 minutes
Add green onions and simmer another 5 minutes
Simple and surprisingly yummy.
