veggie soup

Dan likes to make vegetable juice in the juicer. It's healthy, and tasty. The only downside is all the pulp that is left behind. It's such a waste throwing it away.

A couple of years ago we would make little patties: We'd take the pulp, mix it with egg, boiled potatoes, and spices. Then we would form patties and dip them in bread crumbs, and fry them. It was pretty good.

Today I made a soup. I cut up onion, garlic, carrots, and cauliflower, and sauteed it for a while. Then I dumped in the pulp, and spices. I added water and chicken stock and let it boil until the carrots were soft, before I blended everything using the hand blender. It turned out well. I ate mine with some truffle oil on top, but Dan sad no thanks to that.
