Kim hasn’t been feeling the best lately. Not quite sure what it is but it has the typical symptoms of MS fatigue.
So to boost her immune system a bit more, I cooked up a 3 veggie soup that is high in Vitamin A. The soup was recommended to us by one of our students on Sunday’s soap making workshop. We had nothing to lose as Kim had felt blah for over a week and I had been working from home to care for her, so I was cooking dinner anyway.
Now as I was only given scant instructions I kind of made it up as I went along, so here is my version of a high Vitamin A soup. I think it turned out quite well if I do say so myself.
3 Veggie soup
- 500g Pumpkin, peeled and diced (home-grown)
- 5 Carrots peeled and diced
- 3 medium Sweet Potatoes, peeled and diced
- 2 teaspoons grated Ginger
- 1 teaspoon vegetable stock powder
- 1 pinch chilli powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1.5 litres hot water
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Add all veggies to a 4 litre stock pot. Add stock powder, spices and water. The water should just cover the vegetables.
- Bring to the boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
- Once the veggies are soft, stick blend the 3 veggie soup in the pot until smooth.
- Season to taste. Makes 4 generous portions. Serve with crusty bread and butter.
Who would have imagined that you could make something so delicious with just 3 vegetables and a few spices.
I can tell that this is going to be a regular at our dinner table, especially because I have so many pumpkins from my last harvest yet to eat.
This soup was surprisingly delicious and it warmed the cockles on this cold winters evening. Just the boost I think we all needed!
And has it helped Kim? Well, she seems to think so.
