My friend is sick, so I made her some soup using the first harvest from the garden. Sauteed the onions and garlic in olive oil, added a little fresh grated turmeric, ginger, and cumin. Threw in the carrots, potatoes, and tomatoes along with a mix of vegetable and fish stock and let them simmer about 15 minutes. Added the greens and herbs), including chopped shiso, hyssop, and stinging nettle (all allegedly medicinal) and voila. A witches’ brew for better health. Tasty, too.
