Vegetable soup is a great way to get a variety of vegetables in your diet, even in the middle of winter.  Yes, while fresh tomatoes and green beans always taste better from a summer harvest, many frozen vegetables work pretty well in soups, allowing for the making of a hearty, homemade, vegetable soup.  This soup is more stew like.  If you prefer a soupier consistency just use more vegetable broth, or add in some water.

Sweet Buttered Basil Petit Peas

This is the time of year when I really start craving the fresh, sweet vegetables of spring.  Hearty winter vegetables are wonderful and all, but the anticipation of spring vegetables always seems to creep a bit early.  We still have at least a month before asparagus starts popping up.  With that said, frozen petite peas provide a good fresh, green replacement when we’re still in the middle of the cold months.  Here’s a dish that’s great with fresh basil, if you have it (maybe on a window sill?).  You could crush up some dried basil between your palms if you’re in a pinch.
