Cleaning out refrigerator soup

Thanks to Peter Schaller, who says “There’s nothing better than a lazy Sunday morning to get life in order. This is what I made after cleaning out the vegetable drawer.”

Ingredients

  • 1 large carrot
  • 4 medium sized potatoes (or swap some for sweet potatoes)
  • 3 celery stalks
  • ½ zucchini
  • 4 tomatoes
  • 1green pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon curry
  • ½ tspn black pepper
  • Several dashes soy sauce
  • 1 tspn turmeric.

Method

  • Dice carrots and potatoes and simmer 5 minutes in covered pot with enough water to cover.
  • Meanwhile dice all other veggies and smash garlic and dice finely, then add to pot.
  • Add spices and seasoning to pot and cook approximately 15-20 minutes.

Note: This ends up thick and chewy, but add more liquid if you like. I also added some fat to help absorb nutrients by swirling 1 Tbln coconut oil through the soup. Flavours are even more delicious after several hours or overnight.
