Potato Vegetable Soup
Using a food processor can make many kitchen tasks a breeze. This recipe is comfort food for winter and cold season.
- 1 Food Processor optional, but HUGE time saver
- 1 Immersion blender or blender
- 10 cups veggie broth, water or combination of both
- 6 cloves garlic peeled
- 1 large red onion, quartered and sliced a few more times to make smaller chunks
- 4 carrots, ends cut off peeled or scrubbed well
- 4 celery stalks, trimmed
- 2 lbs baby gold potatoes peeled or not
- 2 cups baby spinach
- 1 small broccoli crown
- 1/4 cup plant milk of choice use an unsweetened variety if possible
- 2 Tbsp chick-it seasoning (or un-chicken blend of choice) see in recipes
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp parsley dried or fresh
- 2 tsp salt (or to taste)
- 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste
- 1 bay leaf
- In a large stock pot, add 10 cups water/broth, cover and set to medium high.
- In a food processor with the S blade running, drop the peeled garlic in to mince.
- Open the lid, add quartered/roughly chopped red onion and pulse to chop small. Add to the pot.
- Switch to the slicing blade and slice the carrots and celery. Add those to the pot.
- Run the potatoes through the slicing blade and place those into a second medium size pot on the stove. Cover potatoes with water and boil gently for about 15 minutes until cooked and fork tender.
- Hand chop (or food processor pulse/slice) the broccoli and add to the large pot along with handfuls of spinach, dry seasonings and bay leaf.
- Once potatoes are fork tender, drain off the water and add 1/4 c. plant milk. Immersion blend to a runny mashed potato consistency. Add to big pot and stir well to combine.
- Add lemon juice, taste and adjust seasonings as desired. Enjoy!
