Miso soup was made -- the basic ingredients of the recipe I use are carrots, turnips and onions with greens added at the end. I've been reading about using carrot greens lately so I added the tops to the soup. I don't think I'd ever even tasted carrot tops before -- raw they're a little bitter but that wasn't a surprise because many greens are bitter. Added to the soup, we didn't notice them and they're full of potassium, calcium, Vitamin C and more. It felt really good to make and eat this soup after the sugar train we've been on.
I searched for carrot green recipes and there are many out there. I like that I can buy intact carrots at the healthy food store now and use our own homegrown carrot tops in the summer -- in France the tops are sold in the markets even without the carrot root, wouldn't that be something? It's all new to me and if it is to you too, a good starter article on carrot greens is here.
That up there is my first-ever attempt at art journaling -- collage glued down, painted over, dabbed and scraped, painted some more, outlined and a Rumi quote on flow written in-- it felt extremely awkward for me to make this but it was so much fun. I feel very brave for even showing it. When and if I continue on this new pathway, it will be with the prompts given at Journal52, a workshop that you can join in at any time and participants share and ask questions. The videos are fun to watch -- the weeks that I'm not participating, I'll surely be watching.
And thanks for visiting here. xo
