Food is at core of an individual, and meals are at the core of a community. Here are some recipes that bring us together. More are welcome!

Guesthouse Soup

Guesthouse Soup is made up of what we have in left overs, soooo, it’s never the same.
Today’s soup is onions, cauliflower, a left over bag of coleslaw mix , broccoli, cherry tomatoes, celery, pearl barley, two cans diced tomatoes, about a litre of beef soup stock, gravy works and a pound of hamburger.
  • Brown the meat in a skillet and add some garlic and salt and pepper
  • In the soup pot, add the rest of the goodies sautéed in a gob of butter, except the cans of tomatoes (they have to be opened first).
  • Drain & add the meat to the pot, open the tomatoes and toss ’em in.
  • Add water to about 3 inches from the pots top, then add the barley,
  • Cover, bring to a boil, stir occasionally, then reduce to low covered.
  • Grab some of the donated bread, butter it & throw it in the oven to brown.
There is generally a two bowl minimum, from our guests, so it works.
This one is very simple:
4 cans diced tomatoes
3 litres of milk
¼ cup baking soda
1 Spanish onion
  • Sauté the butter and onion
  • Next add tomatoes
  • Now this is kind of important: add baking soda, mix well
  • Now add milk
  • Season to taste
  • If you like, some noodles cooked on the side
  • Some sort of bread

Bingo! Another Guesthouse soup
