Because being healthy pays off when you're old while eating delicious food pays off RIGHT NOW!

Remember iceberg lettuce? That cheap stuff that you stopped eating during the economic boom because you ate those fancy baby greens instead? Iceberg lettuce is damn cheap, so you better swallow your pride and this soup will make it go down easier…

1 head of iceberg lettuce
5 sticks of celery
1 cup of flat leaf parsley
1 carrot
5 black peppercorns
dash of salt
4 pansies you steal from your neighbor's flower garden

Remove the stem from the lettuce and roughly chop the leaves. Fill a big pot about three quarters of the way full with water and the dash of salt, and bring to a boil. Then, lower the heat to the absolute lowest setting and put in all the ingredients except the pansies. Let the vegetables seep for about 30 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve. Use the pansies as garnish floating in the soup bowls.

Serves 2.
