Warming Potato Vegetable Soup

Warming Potato Vegetable Soup | curlsnchard.com

Hello weekend! It’s another Saturday and the second installment of my Savory Saturdays! Today I’m going to share my favorite warming soup with you – it’s a potato vegetable soup and the recipe is from my Mum 🙂 It’s perfect for lunch, either before your main dish, or as your main dish. I mostly make a huge bowl and sometimes eat some fresh dark bread with it – filling, warming, wonderful! It is generally a very simple meal, the original recipe that my mum had written down actually only calls for potatoes and onions, but I enjoy to at least add carrots and often also mushrooms into it. This makes it more filling and also more colorful. Who doesn’t enjoy eating a rainbow in a bowl?

Warming Potato Vegetable Soup

Steam rising from the potato vegetable soup | curlsnchard.comYield: 1-2 bowls of soup

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 4 small potatoes
  • 1 small white onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 carrot (sliced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tbsp spelt flour*
  • salt
  • 1 bay leaf, majoram, caraway
  • green onions and some parsley for garnish

*You can use whatever flour you have on hand, everything should work – except probably from coconut flour, as this will definitely change the taste of the dish into a quite interesting combination 😉

Cooking Directions

  1. Peel the potatoes, cut them into small cubes and put them in a small stock pot.
  2. Add the water, a good amount of salt (potatoes need quite a bit of salt), the bay leaf and some marjoram – bring to a boil.
  3. Chop up the onions, add the olive oil and onions to a pan and lightly caramelize them.
  4. Dust the flour over the onions and let it brown slightly.
  5. Add the onion-flour mixture to the soup and use a whisk to incorporate it thoroughly so no flour clumps are left.
  6. Turn the heat down, and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Add the freshly pressed garlic and caraway, stir well and let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes.
  8. The soup is done, when the potatoes are soft.
  9. Use a ladle and pour the soup into a bowl. Add parsley and some chopped up green onions for garnish. Enjoy!

Notes:

  • If you want to add mushrooms, add them right away with the potatoes
  • The amount of soup made from this recipe makes either two bowls if you eat them before your main course, or a large bowl as a main course for 1 person
