I love making soups, LOVE LOVE LOVE making soups. For the most part… I do not follow a recipe. I was pleasantly surprised tonight when I came up with this!

The picture was taken after we devoured it until our bellys were full.

Shasher’s Soup

What you’ll need:

2 TBSP Butter
1 medium onion
3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
can of diced tomatoes
1 bag of dry bean/rice soup mix
2 900 ml containers of chicken broth
1 cup of water
2-3 TBSP of fresh parsley (I might have added a 1/4 cup… I was winging it)
dried bay leaves (I added 2 small leaves)
more garlic (to taste, I think added 3 or 4 more cloves)
a few pinches of ISOP pepper flakes

What you’ll do:

I Melted the butter in a soup pot
Chopped an onion and add it to the melted butter
Added the chopped garlic cloves
Added salt and pepper and cooked the onion until soft, around 5 minutes
Added the bag of dry bean/rice soup mix
Added the can of diced tomatoes (do not drain)
Added the 2 containers of chicken broth
Added a cup of water (it would have been OK with 2 cups of water, next time…)
Added a couple handfuls of fresh parsley, a couple small bay leaves, salt & pepper to taste and I added 3 more cloves of garlic

I brought it to a boil on high heat and then put it down to simmer, left it simmering for about 1 1/2 hours. Added a few pinches of ISOP pepper flakes (a sweet/spicy red pepper) then let it simmer for a few more minutes.


Yummy Shasher’s Soup 🙂

  4. I had to add more chicken stock in the morning, the full bag of bean/rice dry mix was too much for the amount of liquid I had put in. So then I added a half can more of diced tomatoes, another couple of garlic cloves and a few more pinches of ISOP pepper flakes.
