Hearty Veggie Soup

On days like today; gloomy, foggy, chilly, and wet there are only two things that can make it better. One is to make a hearty vegetable soup for my kids and meĀ and the other is to spend the day in banya on my day off…this has become somewhat of a ritual for me.

The soup recipe is so simple is doesn’t even require a recipe and literally anyone can and should definitely do it!

I simply take all the veggies I have in my fridge; which is always a slightly different variation (carrots, potatoes, zucchini,pepper, broccoli, mushrooms, kale, onions, etc). I clean then, peel them, and chop everything up. I add everything into boiling water with Celtic salt, cayenne pepper, turmeric, and saute some onions in the beginning to add.

This sort of soup is a great way to utilize your ingredients and get all the doses of vitamins and nutrients you need for a little energy boost on a grey day.
