Root Soup #SoupSwappers


Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm kicked off this group: Soup Saturday Swappers. And P~, from The Saucy Southerner, is hosting our May theme which is Meatless Soups.

P~ wrote: "The Meatless Monday Movement has been around for a long time and is gaining momentum. May is a great month for all sorts of seasonal vegetables. Make a satisfying soup of any type, chunky, brothy, creamy, but use only vegetables and vegetable stock."

The Meatless Soup Pots




I made a pot of soup rife with root vegetables and some greens. Though we're slowly getting away from chilly days and heading into the warmer month, This would still be perfect for a Meatless Monday...or any day really!


Ingredients
  • 1 C diced onions
  • 1/2 C diced fennel bulb
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 C carrots, cubed
  • 2 C potatoes, cubed
  • 1 C celery root, cubed
  • 6 C vegetable stock
  • 2 C thinly sliced kale
  • 1/2 C fresh parsley, chopped
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Procedure
In a large souppot, heat your olive oil. Stir in the onions, fennel, and garlic. Cook until the onions are translucent and beginning to caramelize. Stir in your cubed roots and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the vegetables are fork tender, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Fold in the kale and parsley and stir until the kale has turned a bright green. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

  4. There are enough potatoes in there to please my Irish husband so that he might not notice that the soup is meatless =)
