|One of my own soup recipes.|
For a light-hearted change, I am posting a recipe. Most people don't know that I'm an avid purveyor of soup. From broth to seasoning, from roil to serving, I take great pride in my soups. I have spent up to several days creating the perfect broth that is inviting to the eye, stellar tasting, and with ultra-nutritional value. Most of all, I suppose, I love "dumping" a bunch of ingredients in a crock pot at night and waking up to a delectable dish. But a good soup need not be complicated, either, in order to be healthy and taste great. I can be particular myself, but soups can be very simple to make!
So, while more people are at home, and to further the "social" aspect of social media, here is one of my own soup recipes. This soup is a simple shortcut. It is also 100% vegan, yet it is 110% delicious and filling! P.S. Carnivores can simply add shredded chicken or favorite seafood.
100% Vegan and Delicious Soup
Put the following in a large crock pot on low overnight (stir occasionally):
-1 or 2 chopped onions (depending on size)
-A can of diced tomatoes (or dice fresh)
-One or two chopped butternut squash (depending on size)
-1/2 can of garbanzo beans (or fresh)—add second half in morning if desired
-Fresh or 1 can mushrooms
-A full head of cauliflower, with florets pulled apart to 1or 2 inches (OR, 1/2 head now, 1/2 head middle of night or morning depending how hard you like them.)
-**Other chopped vegetables if you like, such as chopped bell pepper, celery, and/or carrots.
-1 cup of vegetable broth
-2 cups of water
-Seasoning to taste, or:
2 tablespoons pepper
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons cumin
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon turmeric
In the morning:
-Use a spoon to mash up the squash against the sides of crock pot. Or not if you like them chunky. Avoid mashing the cauliflower.
-Add remaining garbanzo beans
-Add 1/4 or 1/3 cup Thai curry sauce
-Add 2 tablespoons coconut milk
For added flair, when serving top the bowl of soup with a sprinkle of cilantro and coconut shavings.
