Is there such a thing as a soup that is so delicious it causes marital discord? As in, husband and wife fight over who gets the leftovers? Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that there is. Lucky for you, I happen to have the recipe for that soup. I mean, can’t we all use some healthy “discussions” with our spouses now and then? You can thank me later.
This soup is the brainchild of my wonderful husband, who, when he puts his mind to it, ROCKS in the kitchen. No, really, he thinks of things to do to Ramen that no human would ever even consider, and he actually makes it taste good. He’s not the kind of guy who measures anything, but together we managed to get a pretty dang good approximation of what he did to make this soup of deliciousness.
I don’t suggest hiding the leftovers under your bedside table to ensure that your husband doesn’t eat them. I make no promises as to what it will taste like if you do that. Hmm, maybe I should put a disclaimer on the recipe…
Marital Discord Soup
5 large tomatoes
2 red bell peppers
1 1/2 onion (can be red, white or yellow, according to your preference)
10 garlic cloves
3 tbsp olive oil
salt, pepper (to taste)
lemon pepper seasoning (to taste)
italian seasoning (to taste)
1. Cut 5 large tomatoes into wedges and put them into a greased 9×13 pan.
2. Add red peppers, an onion and a half (also sliced into wedges), garlic cloves, 3 tbsp olive oil (drizzle over the rest of the ingredients), and spices.
3. Roast for 25 minutes at 425 degrees.
4. Vitamix the poop out of it (my husband’s words…or you could use a regular blender or immersion blender, of course), and add cooked chicken and parsley for coloring.
5. Fight over the leftovers with your family. Or double the batch and give yourself a little more time before the bickering inevitably starts.
