I don't add a measured amount of water to soup. I only add enough water to barely cover the vegetables in the pot. If I have it on hand, I add some vegetable stock.

I love how you were able to make a good veggie stock that tasted really good. I would pulverize the veggies used to make the stock and add them in and then add some more veggies that you wouldn't have to cook as much. I also sauté the onions, etc. to get the most flavor. You need more veggies to do it this way, but your own home made veggie stock is probably better than the stock you could buy.

No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best!

I often add a bottle of beer (a pilsner or lager) to soup to enrich the broth. Just a thought...

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!
