super veggie soup

so, i went a whole week last week without refined sugars, meat, dairy, or flour. i did a lot of juicing, simple salads, and this soup. drinking all the juice made me crave salt not sugar. usually, i am the opposite. i am assuming it had to do with  all the natural sugars i was still intaking from the fruits and carrots.

by mid week i wanted to start incorporating something other than juice.  juicing has probably been the easiest “diet” i have ever tried. probably because i actually enjoy the juice.  the hardest part, was not being able to watch my cooking shows for fear of cravings taking over me! i did however, watch one of laura calder’s shows, french food at home: french diet food. she made this really simple soup from all veggies and vegetable stock. i took a small twist and added herbs, garlic, and lots and lots of lemon before serving. her recipe calls for artichoke hearts and turnips…which i actually didn’t use because i didn’t have any.

here is what i made:

2 potatos

2 celery stalks

2 carrots

1 zucchini

1 leek

2 tomatos

1 vegetable bouillon

4 cups of water

3 garlic cloves

bundle of rosemary, sage, and thyme

salt and pepper

lots of lemon at the end

cut all the veggies and place in a pot with water, bouillon, garlic, salt and pepper, and herbs. bring to a boil until everything is tender. in a blender or using an emulsion blender, blend everything together until consistency is thick. add lots and lots of lemon to your liking!

this was super yummy and it filled me up!
