Another year has begun and its time to start afresh and wipe off the unfinished resolutions from the past year. The good thing about my resolutions are that they are the same as last year…and the year before that. Oh well, its been the same for the past 4 years!
Regular blogging, concentrate more on food photography and reduce weight to the doctor recommended number. And of course, it’s never been completed. Not even one of the three, not all these years.
Unfulfilled resolutions have become the tradition for me. Will I keep up the tradition or will I really get something done this year? I don’t know. But I do know that I always start fresh in the new year. It’s the keeping it up later that’s the problem.
So here is the first post of the year, under the BM theme: Healthy/ Diabetic diet recipes. That checks off the regular blogging and the weight off the resolution list! Good start, would you not say?! :-)
Saute one chopped onion, one sliced carrot and one stick of sliced celery in two teaspoons of butter.
Add a sliced zucchini and saute for a further 2-3 minutes.
Add 2-3 diced tomatoes and about 6 cups of water or vegetable stock. Add cooked beans of your choice and/or cooked pasta, if using.
Season per taste and let it boil for 4-5 minutes. Check seasonings and take off the heat.
- 2 teaspoons of butter
- one onion, chopped
- one carrot, sliced
- one stick celery, sliced
- 2-3 tomatoes, diced
- 6 cups water or vegetable stock
- 1 cup cooked beans or pasta, optional
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- salt and pepper

Note: There is no one way of preparing the soup and there are many versions with many ingredients. This one was prepared with what I had in my fridge.
