Vegan Storm Moon Soup

11:36 AM

The month of January is a long, cold month here in upstate New York. And, quite aptly, this month's full moon is referred to as the "Storm Moon".     As the second winter storm of the month is rolling in (and it's only the 6th of January),  I'm hunting through the cupboards and freezer in hopes of finding something amazing.  I'm not let down today as I pull the ingredients that will comprise my

Storm Moon Vegan Minestrone
5 cups veggie stock
1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes
1 medium onion chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 head Nappa cabbage (or regular cabbage, or savoy)
4 carrots peeled and sliced
1 zucchini sliced (2 cups winter squash cubed would be lovely too)
1 cup frozen peas
1 can white beans
4 tbsp chopped flatleaf parsley
a palmful of dried basil
a pinch of thyme
a pinch of rubbed sage
1 bay leaf
Sea Salt to taste
black pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients in a large pot.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 2-3 hours.  Serve with hearty wholegrain rolls or toast.
