So I’ve been promising to put up some new recipes and things, so here’s one! A few weeks ago I put gazpacho on my menu plan, and I actually made it! Surprise! So now I’m going to post the recipe. But first, a picture:
So this is a thing I made:
It’s super-easy to make, and super-delicious! Just roast a bunch of carrots and onions with some salt, olive oil, and rosemary.

The garnish is just a sausage, some onion, and a couple of dates sauteed with olive oil and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Throw some Greek yogurt on top to finish it off!
The soup was accompanied by this, which is not a thing I made, but was still super-delicious!

A couple of nights ago I decided to make tortilla soup. I’ve made such soup in the past, and it’s come out decently ok, but our friend A was visiting and she insisted that I had to make her the most awesome meal ever or she would be quite put out.
So anyways, I poked around about ten different recipes for tortilla soup, and cobbled together the best elements of each into this:
