Orange is the winner, but don't despair all you green lovers... You know I'll tell you more about the Christmas tree!
The orange project began by cutting up tomatoes, carrots, and red onions. Sprinkle with oregano and olive oil. Then it needs to spend 20 minutes roasting in a 400 degree oven. The aroma was heavenly! It didn't look much different when it came out of the oven.
Then it all went into a pot with a quart of vegetable stock, and simmered for 10 minutes. Finally, it took a quick whirl through the blender. Just enough to make it somewhat smooth, but still with small chunks.
Place in bowl. Next stop.... stomach!
How was it? Well, I had hopes that it would be on my list of favorites- especially after that wonderful roasting smell. It's good. It's better the second day- after the flavors blend. But... it's not to die for.
Shhh... I'll tell you a secret. Loretta may be able to come for Christmas!
