It all started with a bag of slaw........

I had a bag of slaw in the fridge and I wasn't feeling like making cole slaw. So, I rummaged around in the fridge and pantry and determined that I would put together a soup and it actually turned out quite tasty.

3 carrots, diced
1/2 onion chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
bag of slaw
1 and 1/2 cups broth (I had beef, but veggie or chicken would work)
1 large can of  peeled tomatoes
1 14 oz can of tomato sauce
1 cup farro  (barley would also work)
some dried thyme 1 t
some dried sage 1/2 t
salt and pepper
some Tabasco sauce 2 t or more if you like spicy.

Sauté onions and carrots in olive oil in large soup pot. Add garlic, all the spices. Stir in slaw, the tomatoes, the tomato sauce, one 14 oz can of water, and the broth. Stir and bring to boil then cover and simmer and hour. This makes a thick soup--you can always thin with more broth if you prefer.
