I made this on Monday. I had a ton of potatoes in my kitchen and I had mustard-greens in my garden just waiting to be picked. So I wanted to find a soup recipe that had both of these ingredients. I searched for hours trying to find the "right" recipe. Everything I found was either extremely fattening or non-vegetarian. I decided to look at a few different recipes and make up my own. It turned out delicious. I was very happy with the end result and so were my boys. Here is the recipe:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, diced
3 celery stalks, cut fine
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 water
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups potatoes, diced
2 teaspoons salt
1 cup mustard-greens, chopped
1/2 cup of milk, you can use non-fat, 1%, or 2%
Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)
Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and celery. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
Blend in flour. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly.
Add potatoes, water, vegetable broth, and salt. Stir constantly until boiling.
Turn the heat down to low. Simmer for 20 minutes.
Add mustard-greens, cook for 2 minutes.
Add milk, let it heat for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.
