Spring cleaning!

   No, this post is not going to be about cleaning your house, although it's not a bad idea because there is nothing better than a clean and fresh house! Well, OK, there are better things than that, but lets not go there! Today's "spring cleaning" post will be about cleaning out your fridge's leftover and unused veggies. When they sit in a fridge for a long time they are not as fresh and crispy, so the best thing to do is to put them into a soup! So that is exactly what I did! Don't worry about sticking to the list of ingredients, just check what you have in your fridge and use it. I'm sure it will make a delicious soup anyways. What I used is:

*  1/2 savoy cabbage
*  2 carrots (shredded)
*  1 tomato
*  3 celery sticks
*  1 large onion
*  3-4 tbs tomato sauce
*  dill
*  3-4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
*  2 tbsp fat-free plain yogurt
*  salt and pepper

   Chop the vegetables, put into a big pot with the broth and some water (adjust it to your liking) and cook until veggies are soft. Add tomato sauce, salt and pepper, turn off the heat, and then add the yogurt. It's that easy!

   If you are one of those people that think that soups should be eaten only in fall and winter, I'm sure you will change your mind after trying this one. It's very light and springy and is good all year around!
