For the longest time soups have been one of my favorite comfort foods.
Especially in those cold winter days, where you need to warm up from the inside.
But here is the thing, I find myself struggling when I need to preplan for a meal. I remember my grandma having a pot of soup on the stove all afternoon for the evening dinner, what a wonderful smell. My life doesn’t always allow for that kind of forethought. I struggle, like all of us do, to come up with lunch ideas some days. So, planning for a savory soup for dinner can be wishful thinking.
Easy, fast and tasty
This soup changes everything. It is quick and easy. And on the table within 1 hour, without compromising the taste. All you need to do is grossly cut a few veggies. Bring it to a boil in chicken broth for about 15 to 30 minutes or until the veggies are soft. Then blend it with an immersion blender or transfer to a blender.
You can season it to your taste or even add a hint of fresh cream.
This soup brings color to those gray days, which believe it or not we have been having here in Florida. It completes the dinner table with a warm comfort for you and your family.
How to make this recipe!
5 cups of chicken stock
About 4 cups of carrots (I cut big pieces and it filled up 4 measuring cups)
¾ cup of onion
½ cup potato
1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP maple syrup
Salt, pepper, garlic powder
Side note: The great thing about this recipe is you don’t need to measure everything precisely. It is not baking!
In a deep pot, I warmed up butter, a hint of oil and pinch of salt and my onion until warm.
Added potatoes and carrots. Warm-up for 2 minutes
Add chicken stock.
Bring it to a boil. Then simmer until veggies are nice and soft about 15 to 30 minutes depending on sizes.
Time to puree, if you have an immersion blender it works perfectly in this situation. If not, I transferred all my soup to the blender and then back into my pot.
Season to your liking. We like adding salt, pepper, garlic powder, maple syrup, and ginger.
Et Voila! Bonne Appetit!
