Do you all ever want to kidnap Kevin and have him live in your kitchen forever and ever?

Or is that just me?
Thanks for another terrific recipe, Kevin.

I made the most incredible soup on Sunday ... I always seem to have "tough" meat when I make my soup. So this time I took a 2 pound roast (okay, it was a four pounder I cut in half), threw it in the crock pot with the water, bouillion and onion soup mix and cooked it on HIGH for three hours. I ran home at lunch and pulled apart the roast with two forks ... it was so tender! And then I added the veggies... let it cook the rest of the afternoon. I think I have died and gone to heaven! The meat is generous and so tender! YUMMY!

Any kind of winter squash would work. Acorn, butternut, sweet dumpling.

KEVIN YOU ARE THE MAN

YOUR SOUP LOOKS YUMMY. WE HAD VEG/BEEF SOUP LAST WEEK AND
I USED EDAMAME BEANS AND JAY THOUGHT IT WAS LIMA BEANS

YOU ARE A WONDERFUL COOK AND WE ALL BENENFIT GREATLY FROM YOUR
EXPERIMENTS. I LOVE YOUR PICTURES, IT'S REALLY NICE TO SEE THINGS
DONE IN STAGES.

YES YOU ARE THE ONE PERSON THAT WE ALL VOTED FOR TO BE KIDNAPPED AND TAKEN INTO OUR KITCHENS.

NEXT TIME I'M GOING TO INCLUDE THOSE SWEET DUMPLING OR OTHER
SQUASH CUBES.

TELL YOUR DW THAT SHE IS ONE LUCKY PUPPY.

The delicata you have to peel, cut in half, take out the seeds, and then cut into cubes like potatoes. The following thread has pictures of how I do it for squash browns which is the same.

http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-pictures.html

The zucchini I just slice in half lengthwise and then slice those in 1/2 inch pieces with the skins on.

HTH

I love homemade vegetable soup. I love the lima beans, corn, carrots, and potatoes in my soup. Of course on LC you can't have those. I will be trying this recipe. I think I will try the edamame and carrots and less grean beans and w/o the zuchinni. Kevin do you know how many carbs this will add?

Kevin, how did the texture of the squash hold up? I remember trying it in soup last year and wasn't pleased with the result.

The texture of the squash will be determined by how long it is in the soup. If it was too mushy the last time then do not include it until the soup has been cooking longer. When I do this the texture is fine by me but if you are expecting potatoes the squash will never end up that same texture.

Stupid question, do you need to add the thyme, oragano & rosemary? If so back to the store on my way home tonight I went at lunch and got delicata squash for other recipes, this looks yummy and it is chilly out.

I have tried many combination of spices in vegetable beef soup and this was mine and my family's favorite. As with any spice and taste issue, yours may differ but bare in mind, I have only used fresh herbs....never dried.

Thanks Kevin, sorry another question I am going to get the herbs today and make this tonight. I have never cooked with fresh herbs, do you bundle them together and then throw out when done or chop up and leave in the soup? We may get some wintery weather tomorrow so this would be perfect.

sorry sandy I didn't see this question.

When the soup is done I pitch the herb bundle. After slow cooking all the flavor is in the soup anyway.
