Vegetable Curry Soup

veg curry soup

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!!!

Ingredients –

2 Tbls  Butter
1/4 c Coconut oil
2 Tbls Curry Powder
1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Paprika
Chopped Garlic
Minced Ginger
Flour
S&P
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

My Chocolate Peppermint Brownies

Here’s another recipe I have “made up”  from taking a peak at a few different recipes for brownies and then doing it my own way. I love to do that. I am definitely not a strict follow the recipe kind of girl. I’m always adding in my own ingredients and leaving out others – That could be partly because I rarely have all the ingredients I need for what I’m making.
My neighbors would be nodding their heads right now and saying “Yah we know!”  🙂
But I do have to say these turned out sooo Good – Thick and Fudgey!!!! Um…. Yum!!!
And the flavors of the chocolate with the peppermint – Come on . The perfect balance.

And they’re not TOO bad for you!?!  Maybe a little? – Could be worse?  Here’s the recipe.
