meal prep for the week of Feb 3

potato & pickle soup, loosely based on insane in the brine’s zupa ogorkowa

2 lb Yukon gold potato

1 lb carrots

1 small onion

5 stalks celery

2 bay leaves

8 cups water

2 tbsp better than bouillon vegetable stock

salt, pepper, crushed red pepper to taste

3 dill pickles, diced

2 tbsp pickle brine

saute onion, celery, and carrot. add potato, water, bouillon, bay leaves & seasonings. simmer until potatoes are cooked. add pickles and brine.

i pureed this soup before adding the pickles, next time i won’t be doing that. i’ll also reduce the amount of carrot by half- i went a little too hard on carrots in this because i love them in soup.

next week will be some sort of orzo soup, not sure exactly how but that’s what i’m feeling
