Admittedly, I stole this idea.

Forget New Year’s Resolutions, this year I wanted a project.  I’d rather strive to become a more interesting person in the New Year than try to quit something, or give myself guilt later on for not following some abstract rule I’ve placed upon myself.  So John and I brainstormed some ideas, and the winner was The Year of the Soup.

We heard this idea earlier this summer from a friend who had designated 2009 her Year of the Soup, and she spoke proudly of the interesting recipes she learned, such as Borscht and Pozole.  I remember thinking “I want to know how to make cool things like that!”  And since culinary prowess is something I pride myself on (come over for dinner sometime and I’ll show you), I deemed this a worthy project for 2010.

The game is to make one soup per week for the next 52 weeks.  Of course I’ll likely be out of town for some of those weeks, but I’ll try to stick as close to that 52 number as possible.  Blogging my efforts can only help me succeed, so you can look forward to seeing photos and recipes about once a week.  Maybe one will inspire you.  Keep in mind all recipes will be vegetarian, and if you have suggestions of your own please share!

Last night I made the first 2010 soup, pictured right – Italian Chickpea Soup.  It was superb (even without the oregano, since Sunflower Market was out.)  Paired with bread and garlic butter – yum!
