Farmers Market Soup

Just came back from my weekly trip to the Farmer’s Market (is it Farmers’ Market? or perhaps Farmers Market?). Above is a beautiful soup I made from some of my purchases last week.


  • 2 onions
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 3 yellow-orange squash
  • 4 leaves of fresh basil
  • 2 peeled cloves of garlic, chopped or pressed
  • 3 small tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Saute the onions in olive oil until translucent. Add squash and water. Cook for ten minutes. Add remaining ingredients. Cook until squash is tender. Enjoy. If you like, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Update: you might want to add some lemon. I can’t remember if I did or didn’t. I definitely didn’t buy lemon at the Farmer’s Market. New Jersey isn’t that warm (yet).

Topics I’d Like to Cover

I have more ideas for posts than time. Here are some I’d like to present:

And I have a Pirkei Avot post that I promise, at least to Ilana-Davita, bli neder (without making the promise have to stand up in a Jewish court, or something like that), that I will get online this week. About how even if you’re an old fogey-stogey like we are becoming, you can still learn Torah. But it’s much easier to get started when you’re young.
