Root Veggie Soup…

on April 30, 2012

This had started out as root veggie stew, but I changed my mind halfway through… 🙂

In a pot…

  • 2 tbsp of good olive oil
  • 1 diced onion
  • 3 cloves of chopped garlic

Let these aromatic beauties sizzles for a couple of minutes and then dice the following and throw ’em in…

  • 4 carrots
  • 1 small yellow potato
  • 1 small red potato
  • 1 yam
  • 1 red yam
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 large parsnip
  • 1 turnip
  • 2 sunchokes
  • a pinch of each – cinnamon, clove and cumin

Let all of these simmer away on medium heat for about ten minutes and then cover with water… turn the heat down to low, cover the pot and cook another ten minutes.

Turn off the heat and with a hand blender, puree away!

Add S&P to taste… we topped ours with a little brown rice and a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds.

Add a bean of your choice to the pot for a little extra goodness (& protein) …. this should serve 4-6 peeps.

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
