Green Monster Soup

March 26, 2013

Big Ugly Monsters

I named this soup after the big ugly monsters on the Power Rangers.  I was having a relaxing afternoon and I just felt like watching a childhood favourite. I made this super healthy green soup and the look of it resembled the monsters featured in the episode unfortunately.  Luckily the soup tasted good so I wasn’t put off.  I really love my vegetables so I didn’t feel this to be a big a challenge as fighting the forces of evil.  Don’t fight the vegetables people there are more important things to worry about.  This soup is for the hardcore!

This recipe was adapted from Bon Appétit Magazine (2013).
