I posted this soup on instagram a couple months ago and my “dear” sister told me it looked like the saddest soup she has ever seen! What??? Whatever – Well it tastes delicious – seriously and I think it looks delish too!!
Now looking at it again and thinking of it – I’ve got to make it again – like now!!
I will admit I actually did make a very sad …. dreadful is probably a better word – looking soup a few days after this that looked like it would have been the soup that Charlie and his poor family would have been eating in the beds from the original Charlie and chocolate factory – Here’s a tip don’t put purple cabbage in any soup especially with white potatoes and ground turkey – Ugh Awful!!!
2 Tbls Butter
1/4 c Coconut oil
2 Tbls Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 large Onion
5 stalks Celery
1 Sweet Potato
1 large white &/ or 4 red potato’s
8 cups Chicken stock or broth
1 cup Half & Half
In large pot on stove I made a roux with butter and coconut oil, flour, curry powder, masala powder, mustard, paprika, Salt and Pepper –
Once that is all mixed and “rouxed” up
Add in chopped onion, garlic & ginger Saute’ for a bit then add
6-8 cups Chicken or vegetable Broth / stock Diced – Carrots, Celery Sweet Potato’s Red and/ or white Potato’s.
Let soup come to a boil for a few minutes then turn to low, pour in half and half cover and simmer for at least a couple hours.
Season as you like + or – ….. and enjoy!
+++ Other add ins you could do – Rotisserie chicken. Rice, noodles, quinoa, beans (like white kidney, or garbanzo , coconut milk. I just did stuff I had on hand and it was perfect.
I would love to hear if you make it & what your thoughts are.
Much love & wellness
