Chive Soup

I'm always looking for ways of using the volunteer foods that grow each year in my yard. Here's a quick and easy soup I developed to use some of the hoards of chives that fill up one any avaliable patch of dirt in my backyard.

Chive Soup (children's version)*

In a medium size saucepan, add 1 tbsp of oil and saute:

1 lrg clove of garlic
2 carrots, chopped
3 potatoes, cubed

Saute for a couple of minutes, then add:

3 cups vegetable stock
1 cup of chives, chopped
1/4 tsp salt

Simmer until vegetables are cooked.
Add 1/4 cup of milk (soy or rice) and a couple of leaves of kale if you've got them. Use a hand held wand blender to blend the soup until more or less smooth (or carefully scoop most of the soup into a blender to do the deed.)

* For a more exciting (read : adult) taste, add a bit of chilli pepper and extra garlic

Enjoy!

    I'm going to try it with coconut milk.
