Rainy day dinner

It was so rainy and yucky on Saturday and we had no desire to go to the grocery store. We didn’t have much in the fridge, but after a little scrounging I found some ingredients and decided to make a soup. It was fun because I didn’t use a recipe this time. I had cubed butternut squash in the freezer, half a red onion, garlic, white beans, fresh rosemary, turkey kielbasa, a carrot, shallots, and vegetable broth.

I tossed the squash, garlic, and red onion (which I cut into big chunks) with olive oil, fresh chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper in the oven on 400 degrees for about 25 minutes. In a soup pot, I sauteed diced carrot and garlic in olive oil and then added the roasted veggies and white beans. Then I added some veggie broth and let it come to a quick boil. I then used the immersion blender to puree it all. Then I cubed up the turkey kielbasa and browned it in a pan. In another pan I heated a little canola oil and crisped up some shallots that I had dipped in flour.

The final result was a roasted vegetable and white bean soup with turkey kielbasa and crispy shallots. It was so good and I was so proud of myself for just winging it!
