{Grab what you have Soup}

I'm the kind of cook that doesn't have to measure everything or follow a recipe...
Many days I simply use what I have on hand when
creating a new dish or meal.
Hence...This Yummy Soup I made last night....
The ingredients I found were:
1 bag of frozen peas 
a partial bag of frozen edamame
1 can of spinach
a package of soft tofu
1/2 onion chopped 
salt & pepper
citrus seasoning
some sweet chili sauce
1 can of fat free chicken broth
1/2 cup non-fat milk
I put the first 8 ingredients in one of my favorite tools ever:
My Kitchen Aid Food Processor...and pureed them!
Then I emptied it into a pan on the stove and added the broth and milk 
and let it simmer for about 20 mins!
A dallop of sour cream and some fresh chopped scallions 
finished it off!

 And so good for you!

Stay Cozy & Healthy, Carrie

When I read edamane I rememebered that I still have not found them in the store. I had some at a resturant one time and would love to try them. Do you grow your own or do you know where I could find them?
Thanks for sharing, it might be a whatever I can find kind of night.

Oh I envy you for being able to create something and have it taste good too. Whenever I have tried to do that - it isn't so tastey. But then I don't claim to be much of a cook. This looks delicious and healthy! Way to go!

I found a big bag of edamame at Costco, thanks!
It will be a nice "snack" for me and my daughter after school. The other two kids aren't so sure about them.
But it is a quick vegie to make with a meal.
Thanks again.
