As you know I was sick for a while there. Soup is of course, the meal to make you “better”, but when you’re sick, if you’re like me, you don’t feel good enough to make it. On Tuesday I finally felt decent enough to make my go-to vegetable soup for sickies. Here’s the recipe.
Vegan Vegetable Soup
2 cups celery, diced
2 cups carrots, diced
2 cups potatoes, diced
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup leeks, diced
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 cup lentils
6 to 8 cups water or vegetable broth (I use broth since it tastes good)
Just sauté the celery, carrots, onion, leeks and garlic for about 6 minutes, add the water and bring to a boil. Throw in the potatoes and lentils and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes. Then leave on a low heat until veggies are cooked through the way you like.
For seasonings, I just throw in anything including, sage, thyme, rosemary, cilantro, basil, parsley, and whatever else I feel like. I don’t measure, so my soup tastes a little different every time. You can use whatever it is you feel like.
I made this in the morning so I could have it for lunch and dinner. I served this for dinner with a French bread that I bought at the store. Enjoy! If you have any go-to soup for sickies, please share.
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend.
