Fridge & Pantry Soup, or, the continuing nutritious feeding of Shog!

I'm out of homemade bone and veggie broths, so I had to wing it with store bought broth and bouillon, but it turned out all right. My goal: clean out my fridge and pantry! My solution: Fridge & Pantry Soup!

Fridge & Pantry Soup
18 cups

1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb onions, chopped
1/2 lb leeks, chopped
1/2 lb celery, chopped
1/4 lb carrots, chopped
2 Tbsp garlic, minced

1 1/2 lb red potatoes, chopped
18 oz artichoke hearts, chopped
8 cups Pacific Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
2 (13.66-oz) cans Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk
6 packets No Sodium Herb Ox Chicken Bouillon
3 cubes Rapunzel No-Salt-Added Vegetable Bouillon
2 bay leaves
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped fine
1 cup fresh parsley, chopped fine
1/2 cup fresh Thai basil, chopped fine

Sauté first set of ingredients until softened, about 20 minutes. Add second set of ingredients; allow to simmer for one hour. Blend soup with immersion blender. Add third set of ingredients; heat for ten minutes. Allow to cool. Store overnight. Serve hot or cold.

Approximate nutrition per cup of soup: 157 calories, 4 g fat, 2 mg cholesterol, 151 mg sodium, 485 mg potassium, 16 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, and 4 g protein.

We enjoyed the soup tonight before its flavors had a chance to meld overnight, but that's fine. I'm going to freeze some of it, and to a four-cup, reheated pot (some time a few, cooler weeks from now), I'm going to blend in some peanut butter to make it a wee bit heartier. :D

It's been a pretty damn good day: I walked, read, wrote, volunteered, cooked, baked, communed (with my fuzzies), and talked (a friend down from throttling her teen in his sleep; someone was Pokémon Go-ing all night and slept most of the day). I think I might reward myself with a movie. Shog wants to see Sausage Party, which is never going to happen. I'd much rather see Florence Foster Jenkins. Of course, we could always stay in and watch Deadpool a fourth time. *rolls eyes*

*smooches all*
