    I threw all this into a pot for dinner tonight...

    3 huge cans of chicken broth
    Loads of veggies... green beans, carrots, brussel sprouts, green peppers, zucchini, squash, tomatoes, garlic, pepper and salt

    Now what seasonings would you add to make it taste good?

    I would put a little rosemary and a lot of thyme . . . maybe a handful of pasta or rice? If were me I would use some elbow pasta. Let me think some more . . . ok got it . . . also, a cup of white wine and some oil to bind the flavors together (I would use olive oil). Put the pasta in at the last 10 min.

    I'm not sure, but that sounds really good. I'm curious to see what people suggest.

    Thanks for ideas [​IMG]... I added Italian seasoning, then to our own bowls we added Parmesan cheese and hot pepper relish...

    As an alternative for using summer garden produce ...

    Brown some chicken and diced onions. Add some red curry paste. Add a can of coconut coconut milk and hold below a boil. Add any vegetables you want, cut to "stir fry" sizes. Simmer. Add some basil. Serve over rice.

    Great way to use garden produce this time of year. Also a great way to use chicken "dark meat", although any chicken meat is fine. We are up to our ears in green beans, carrots, and tomatos, and all go well in this.

    You can probably find red curry paste in the asian section of your grocery store, or at an asian grocery if you have them in your area. If not, there are lots of recipes on the net for making curry paste from scratch.

    This also freezes well ... just make fresh rice, re-heat, and eat!
