Do you like a hot cup of soup on a dreary day? Some how it really lifts your spirit to enjoy a nourishing cup of soup.
Here is my favorite recipe:
Nourishing Potato Soup
by Melinda Weiser
2 Tbs. Safflower Oil
1/2 cup diced celery plus celery leaves
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 cups large diced organic potatoes
1/2 cup diced carrots
2 quarts chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon sweet basil
1/2 teaspoon parsleys
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons sea salt (season to taste)
2 cups raw milk
Heat oil in your pan and add celery and onion. Cover and cook on medium until tender.
Add the remaining ingredients, except for the milk. Cover and cook on low until potatoes are tender.
Remove from heat. Just before serving, stir in raw milk into the hot soup.
Add more sea salt if needed. Potatoes can take a lot of salt, so check according to taste.
Serve warm in coffee mugs, or the container of your choice. The mugs make it fun for kids, and mom too.
A variation I make of this soup sometimes, is too exchange leeks for the red onion, and add a 1/2 cup of kale. The leeks give a milder flavor, and the kale really boosts the vitamin K content. But my favorite was is to use the red onion.
So many wonderful nutrients in this soup. Chicken stock is full of dissolved minerals ready for the body to use. Raw milk is really important for the enzymes, vitamins, minerals, vitamin K, and more. As long as you don’t boil the soup with the milk in it, you will retain most of the wonderful nutrients in the raw milk. The onions, celery, potatoes, carrots, parsley and basil all impart a vast array of healthy nutrients.
This is truly a nourishing meal!
