Easy Peasy Minestrone Style Soup


What’s the connection between feng shui & food you ask? As you know, the chi in your surroundings and in the food you eat either nourish or deplete you. How you prepare your meals adds to the vibrancy of the food you eat and serve to others.  For those who know me well, know I love to cook. My love of cooking adds joy to the food I eat. And that’s a good thing and good things are good feng shui!



1 carton of chicken (or vegetable) stock

1 can of chopped tomatoes

1 can of garbanzo beans

1/2 of bag of frozen spinach

1 -2 stalks of celery, chopped

2-3 carrots, peeled and chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 -2 cloves of fresh minced garlic

oregano, basil and a pinch of rosemary

Saute celery, carrots, and onion in a generous amount of olive oil until soft. Add the garlic and spices and continue to saute a few more minutes. (Don’t burn the garlic!) Add the sauteed veggies and the remaining ingredients to a crock pot and cook until all the flavors are blended (about a couple hours). Serve with freshly grated Parmesan.

    This sounds wonderful, and healthy, and just right to lighten up a cold winter evening, and warm up both the body and the spirit. Thanks, Catherine (for EVERYTHING you do!). Happy New Year, and hugs.
