Cold temperatures call for warm comfort food. Not all comfort food is unhealthy, one of my favourite meals to make during the winter season is a hearty veggie soup. This one is a favourite because of the bold flavours and simplicity of the recipe.
If you're looking for a recipe that is simple, healthy and delicious, this one is for you!
Step 1: Add 1 TBSP of coconut oil to a large pot set on low-medium heat.
Step 2: Chop 3 Leeks and add to coconut oil in pot, stir.
Step 3: Chop carrots and celery (half a bag of organic rainbow carrots) and 1 bunch of organic celery. Add to pot of leeks.
Add your favourite seasonings: I used SPIKE (a seasoning that is a mix of herbs and salt), along with some freshly cracked organic pepper and a dash of hot sauce.
Once all of your veggies are in the pot, and the spices are mixed in, simply add 2 cartons of sodium-free vegetable stock and let simmer on low for approximately 30-45 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
If you want to create a heartier soup, I like to add chunky sweet potatoes, rice noodles or chopped butternut squash. Root vegetables are a great addition to this soup!
Simmer until cooked. Eat and enjoy! xoxo JMH
