I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Tomato Salsa Soup

Can't beat the taste of fresh tomatoes!

4 cups tomato juice (fresh or canned)
1/4 cup salsa
1  1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups chopped broccoli (flowerets or stems)
1 small onion, diced
2 tbsps hummus
3/4 cup chopped cooked chicken
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

I was blanching and peeling tomatoes for salsa and was able to reserve 4 cups of tomato juice, but you can use store bought tomato juice too. (Won't have quite the freshness factor though)

Here's the link to the salsa I was making:

Put all the ingredients except cilantro into a large pot, bring to a boil then simmer for 5-10 minutes until broccoli is cooked.

Using an immersion blender or food processor blend until almost smooth. 

Add cilantro, salt and pepper to taste
