Lisa Donohue's CSA Standby Soup

Steve Peters

Last Friday our friend Lisa Donohue, of the Thrive Center in Wallingford, joined us at the Friday Summer Series in downtown Rutland to share one of her favorite summer recipes: her CSA standby soup. While at its base, this is a leek and potato soup, Lisa has enhanced the Smokey House Center's recipe with a whole variety of seasonal, local vegetables - you know, those you might acquire from your CSA and don't know how to possibly use them all.

If you sampled her tasty soup on Friday, you would have enjoyed fresh produce from Evening Song Farm and Tangled Roots Farm, stock made from Yoder Farm chicken, and Cobb Smoked Bacon from the Wallingford Locker.

Check out this handy guide featuring some of Lisa's soup making tips and then enjoy her recipe. While you eat, why not watch Lisa's June episode of her PEG TV show, Heart of the Matterwith RAFFL's executive director, Tara Kelly, and community engagement coordinator, Elizabeth Theriault. You can find the episode under "playlist".
