Soup may be the best thing on the planet. It's easy to make. It's unbelievably tasty. There are infinite variations. It's warm and soothing. In short, I LOVE SOUP.
6 c water
1 potato, diced
1 carrot, diced
1/2 c corn
1 1/2 c fire-roasted tomatoes
3/4 c beans
1/2 c cabbage, chopped small
1 T olive oil
3 T vegetable bouillon
1/2 t Thyme
1 t garlic
1/2 t salt
1/2 t paprika
1/4-1/2 t cayenne
1/2 block tempeh (marinated with soy sauce and olive oil)
First, cut into cubes and marinate your tempeh. Set aside and add to soup at the very end.
Bring water to boil. Boil potatoes for about 5 minutes. Then add carrots and keep boiling for another 5 minutes.
Then, add corn, beans, tomatoes and oil and spices.
Make sure your potatoes and carrots are the right texture. If you do, add the tempeh last - and heat up. Voila!
Make sure the soup is spicy enough and enjoy!
This was my first meal after not eating for a week.. and it was heavenly! Top with a fresh avocado. It cools the heat and just accents the soup unbelievably well.
Use whatever you have on hand. Have another veggie? Use it instead!
