Ah, the smell of this soup simmering and the sight of the rain pouring down seem to go together so well.  🙂

What you’ll need…

  • 1/2 a red onion
  • 1/2 a white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2tsp of dried oregano

Chop the above and throw them into a soup pot.

Drizzle about a tablespoon of good olive oil in and let them simmer for about ten minutes.

Then add in…

  • 1/2c of celery
  • 1/2c of zucchini
  • 1c yam or sweet potato (the orange one… or both)
  • 1c of cauliflower
  • 4 tomatoes

Let all of the above sizzle and steam until the veggies are almost tender.

Add about four cups of water and turn off the heat……

About ten minutes before serving return the pot to medium-high heat.

Add in…

  • 4c of water (more or less depending on how ‘soupy’ you like your soup)
  • 3/4c of organic corn macaroni
  • 1c each chopped spinach and chopped kale
  • S&P to taste

You could also add in some white beans or pinto beans if you’d like – add a little protein and some extra fiber?

Super simple, super healthy and super tasty!

Happy, healthy eating y’all!
