gosinta soup

years ago, a coworker was heating up some soup during lunch in our staff kitchen. it smelled SO GOOD.  “what is that?!” i asked.  “gosinta,” she said.  “never hear of it?” i said. “whatever you have goes into it,” she said. PERFECT!

Last night we had just that.  here’s the recipe, but if you don’t have the list below in your fridge, believe me when i say, you can use anything!

the soup
1 leek
2 carrots
2 celery sticks
2 parsnips
3 cloves garlic
1/2 head of green cabbage
1 large can diced tomatoes
salt & pepper to taste
handful chopped parsley
red pepper flakes to taste

saute leeks, carrots, celery and garlic until the kitchen smells goods. add water and chopped parsnips. i added 8ish cups of water. bring to a boil, then turn down the heat. let the veggies simmer until tender, but still crunchy.  add chopped cabbage and spices.  give it 15 more minutes or until cabbage is to your liking. add tomatoes. taste and spice again if necessary.

honestly, this soup was made special by the homemade pesto that was added to the top. see my recipe here.  top soup with a dollop of this and a piece of crusty bread and you are the dinner hero!
