Creamy and Delicious

I had quite a lot of vegetables kicking around in the fridge this week and I needed to use them in a hurry. Sometimes serving a whole host of vegetables individually can prove difficult and not palatable for some diners (aka young diners). So I thought ‘What the heck! I’ll just throw them all in together!’ The result was delicious and well received. One Pot Vegetable Soup was served up for dinner and for lunches the next day, and the day after that. Success!

You could always vary the veggies you use. For this version I included cauliflower, pumpkin, zucchini and kale- generous amounts of each. I also included a tin or organic chickpeas for extra iron, protein and fibre. There wasn’t one flavour that stood out above the rest. I included a small bunch of bay leaves for a mellow flavour. It was warm, comforting and easily digested. I stirred in a little cream to make it extra yummy. Then I served it with fresh damper which made it an extremely filling meal. Rich in vitamins like vitamin A as well as iron this could be your mid week boost of vegetables.

Who said we need to eat meat every day? We certainly don’t and serving extra vegetables gives your diet a boost of vitamins and minerals. It also gives your body a break from the saturated fats found in meats. I would never tell anyone to go vegetarian or vegan, that is a personal preference. I have found though that my health has improved by introducing more plant based cooking into our diet. It is a good lesson for kids too to learn to enjoy plant based cooking at a young age.

So if you are looking for a simple, vegetable meal look no further than One Pot Vegetable Soup.
