The Best Root Vegetable Soup For Cold Winter Days

Published:

January 27, 2016

This is an easy recipe with spicy flair, perfect for winter months. Carrot, squash, and lemon grass make for a complex, nutrient-rich soupā€”you don’t have to wait ages for anything to cook, and it’s just two steps. Enjoy!

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat a large, heavy-bottomed soup pot over a medium flame on stovetop. Add all ingredients and bring to a boil.

2. Lower to simmer, cover, and cook for 30 minutes or until vegetables are just fork tender. I call this ā€œtender-crispā€. The vegetables should be cooked, but not mushy.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 carrots, peeled, diced
  • 2 medium-sized ripe tomatoes, diced
  • Ā¼ small celeriac, peeled and diced
  • Ā¼ small kabocha squash (or similar winter squash), diced
  • 1 finger length red chili, seeds removed, minced
  • 1 birds eye chili, seeds removed, minced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 leeks, cut into half-moons about Ā½ inch wide
  • 2 lemongrass stalks, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons double concentrated tomato paste
  • Several garlic cloves, lightly crushed (optional)
