Last night I made soup and this is approximately what happened:
6-8 med Potatoes
1 can Corn
2 large carrots
1/4 cup onion
1 tsp. garlic
3 bay leaves
9 cups veggie "chicken style" stock
1 crown of broccoli
1 whole Anaheim chili
about a cup of soy milk
1 tsp dried Thyme
loads of freshly ground pepper.
I boiled potatoes and carrots first, drain water and measure in 9 cups of fresh water. Then add the rest of the ingredients except the soymilk, thyme and pepper until it's almost done.
I like adding things in stages according to how long they need to cook, so potatoes and carrots together, onion, chili, garlic together, broccoli last...then the seasonings.
