‘Get well soon ’ Vegetable soup
The broth of this soup is packed full of flavor and is even better on the second day.
When my body needs a little help doing what it does best, heal; I know it’s time for a big pot of warming vegetable soup.
This one here is loaded with many incredible elements. The ingredient list makes my heart sing and this soup makes my body feel supported, when she needs it the most.
When healing; there is a spectrum to my energy. Some days I have enough spark to spend lots of time in the kitchen, where as other days I rely on my frozen meals prepared in advance. Having large mason jars full of hearty foods like this keeps me from ordering take out, saves the extra packaging waste and allows me to see the ingredients myself – to ensure everything in the food is vibrant and nourishing. The broth of this soup is packed full of flavor and is even better on the seconds day.
To retain the beneficial properties of the live miso, adding it towards the end is key. Boiling the miso into the soup can kill it’s active/live cultures and bacteria. Fermented foods are special and we must handle with love and care.
Whether you’re feeling under the weather, healing the body or simply just want a delicious meal – this soup is here for you.
Cheers to health!
