Magic Veggie Soup

Vegetable Soup

Finally, I decided to start sharing some of the recipes that I normally share in pictures. I just want to clarify that most of them, I got online, or book. With time I just tweaked them to my taste and simply enjoyed them. What's even better, the fact that my non vegan family enjoyed it as well.
So here it is, my awesome magic soup. You can adjust it to whatever vegetables you have currently in your fridge, and rice or noodles on it when you serve it or strain the vegetables out and save it on ice cube container to be used as stock for a different recipe.

Vegetable Magic Soup

2 Tbs olive oil
2 Stacks of celery, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
3 minced cloves of fresh garlic
6 small potatoes
1/2 head of broccoli
1/2 of red pepper, chopped
1 bunch of cilantro or parsley
1 lemon or lime
1 Bay leave
Salt and pepper to taste
Some flakes of crushed red pepper


In a large pot, with medium to high heat, add the olive oil and allow it to get warm for a minute. Add the onion first and let it fry for about a minute, add the bay leave, then  slowly add the celery and carrots, keep adding the rest of the ingredients little by little until you ran out of all the ingredients except the cilantro and cover the pot. Let it cook for about 5 minutes moving it constantly. Add about 6 to 8 cups of water, turn the heat down and let it all cook for about 30 to 45 minutes with the cover on. Around this time you want to add the cilantro, salt, pepper, red crushed pepper flakes and the juice of half a lemon.

Let it simmer for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to mix in. Serve over some rice or noodles and enjoy!
