I have been making this veggie soup this whole winter because it is just so easy to cook. It has a silky smooth texture and taste so divine. Soup is the mother of all comfort food..it is not exaggeration although it may sound like it 🙂 I invite my son to help me out by putting the veggies in the pot and then pour water over them, he gets super excited and the end result is him enjoying a bowl of vegetables with me 🙂 How cool is that?? This is so far the easiest way to feed him some veggies. He even snacks on raw carrots as I prepare them for the soup. For this recipe I just boil a desiree potato, brown onion, few carrots, one parsnip and one turnip till they are tender..then I simply blend them for a smooth, silky texture. I usually drizzle it with olive oil before serving.
I enjoyed this soup with a slice of German dark bread smothered with creamy avocado, and topped with salad leaves and a slice of tomatoes.
My son shared this meal with me, complimenting “ooh its good mama” :’), and if you are a mother you know how important it is to include vegetables in our children’s diet. It’s a super veggie meal..so satisfying and delicious. I have a lovely friend who is vegetarian, I dedicate this post to her:)
