Is it pretty?
Did it taste really good, MUCH better than expected?
Adapted from Eating Well
Sauteed carrots, garlic, and onion, then soaked pinto beans.. followed by lotsa water, nooch, sumac, a few dried herbs, veggie chicken bouillon. Added in whole wheat linguine, torn/stemmed spinach, corn starch slurry, and setian. Served with a large dollop of pesto (subbing mirin for the olive oil, and adding sunflower seeds to thicken)
This was super good - it kind of reminds me of restaurant wedding soup! I've been wanting to recreate this flavour for a while, but this totally happened by accident.
PS - I might get a Vitamix soon!
PPS - I totally cut my finger reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally badly on my immersion blender today. Was trying to clean the blade out, and then I accidentally pushed the button to make the blade spin. OOOUCH!
