Happy Earth Day

Having a wife that is working on her PhD in Environmental Science with a focus on Water Toxicology means that Earth Day each year is kind of like Christmas minus the presents. She walks around with a big smile on her face wishing everyone she meets “Happy Earth Day” and trying even harder than she usually does to make the Earth a more beautiful place.

So go and enjoy the day. And pick up some trash while you’re at it.

    This is the best I can offer: Fred’s Idiot-Proof Potage.

    Fill blender with fresh vegetables. OK, yes, “fresh organic vegetables.” Peas, soybeans, etc should probably be shelled first. If you must know, we used equal parts broccoli, cauliflower, peas and carrots. Leave a little space at the top, since you will fill in with slightly more liquid than solids. We were running out of room, otherwise fresh spinach, soybeans, and squash/zucchini would have been excellent additions. Not sure about avocados: ask the wife.

    Fill in with liquid by using equal parts tomato soup and veggie broth. Yes, yes, everything can be organic, free range, locally grown, small footprint, etc.

    Season with a little fresh mint or basil, and the grated cheese of your choice. Blend to the consistency of a bisque. Vegans, forget what I said about the cheese.

    Store in fridge for (at last count) five days and heat lightly before serving. Do not nuke. Heat lightly. 50% of this product by volume counts toward your raw food quota.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.
