Colleen's Veggie soup March 2018

You won’t believe how easy and delicious this recipe is…a great way to add more vegetables to your everyday meals and easy to dress up for company.  If you’re short on time, opt for pre-cut vegetables from your grocery store.

Ingredients

  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
  • 1 small broccoli, chopped
  • 1 small cauliflower, chopped
  • 1 8-oz bag of matchstick carrots (approx 4 cups)  (this cut of carrots saves chopping and cooking time!)
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped
  • Baby spinach leaves, approx 5 ounces or 4 cups
  • 1 litre or so of good quality chicken broth
  • ¼ cup shredded cooked chicken (optional)
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp sea salt (used smoked sea salt, if you have it)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat butter or oil in soup pot.  Add celery and onion. Cook until soft and fragrant, about 3 minutes
  2. Add all vegetables and cover with broth.  (In order for the soup to have some thickness, broth should be just cover the vegetables)
  3. Simmer until vegetables are soft (usually 10 to 12 minutes)
  4. Once vegetables feel soft when tested with a fork, use immersion blender to blend the soup to your desired consistency
  5. Add chicken, if using, season to taste, stir and serve

Variations:  Use any vegetables or seasonings you like!  For a completely vegetarian dish, use vegetable broth instead
