Well.. my last post in this category garnered a lot of attention. Apparently, you are all fascinated by what we eat over here. 😉 I am happy to satisfy your curiousity!
I like simple. Have I told you that before? Simple should be my middle name. I prefer simple dinners (that taste delish), simple home decor, even simply photographing a child/family/baby the way the are, without all the props. (Huge shout out to my buddies that prop shoot.. your energy amazes me..) So, the things I will be posting in this category.. You guessed it. Simple.
Soup. What to say about soup.
Do you want to use only one pot (most of the time) to cook and serve your family’s dinner?
Do you want to add a ton of nutrition, hidden or otherwise, in that said pot?
Do you need an inexpensive way to fill up your pre-teen man-boy?
Do you need a quick and easy gluten free meal?
My weary brain heaves a sigh of relief when the weather turns colder, for I know that my fam will happily slurp up soup a couple times a week. Praise the Lord! Even better.. when I plan ahead and can have that soup in my old green (but fabulous) crockpot.
Behold, I give you my Potato Soup recipe. It is yours for the taking and using! Please feed it to your family. Please try to buy organic potatoes as well. I am not able to buy organic everything, but I do try to always purchase the dirty dozen organically, as they contain 90% of America’s pesticides.
Anyway.. back to the recipe.
Chop up some onion and garlic . Saute in a pot for a few minutes.
Add 2 cups chopped and peeled carrots. (Nutrient dense food alert)
Peel and dice about 2 pounds of potatoes. Add to pot.
Add 1 cleaned and chopped head of cauliflower. (My secret nutrition weapon.. can’t even tell it’s in there!!)
Season to taste and pour water or stock to cover veggies. Bring to a bubble and simmer for about 30-45 minutes until tender.
Immersion blend away, and add a splash of heavy cream for its, well, creaminess.
There is no cheese in this recipe, but it is certainly a welcome addition.
I served ours with some leftover (Uncured, Organic) bacon bits, and homemade gf croutons. My boys will revolt if I serve any type of soup without a bread like substance of sorts.
You might be happy to note that my meat loving men ate this soup 2 nights in a row. Yes, it makes that much. This freezes well too.. just freeze before you add cheese or cream.
Happy Soup-ing Y’all!!
