Easy Soup Recipe - Ingredients - serves 6 - 8

  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 white onions, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 large cauliflower florets
  • 5 sweet potatoes, cubed
  • 6 carrots, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1.5l stock - we used home made chicken stock but you could use vegetable stock or whatever you have available

Instructions

  1. Prepare the vegetables.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan.
  3. Gently fry the onions until translucent.
  4. Throw in the carrots and garlic and stir through until nicely coated with the onions and oil.
  5. Add the rest of the vegetables to the pan then pour in the stock.
  6. Cover the pan with a lid and leave to gently simmer for 45 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.
  7. If you are like us and don't like lumps in your soup, use an immersion blender to blitz it until it's smooth.
  8. Taste and season.
  9. Serve with a sprinkling of freshly chopped parsley and a paleo roll.

If the soup is to thick for your liking add a little hot water and blend again. If you wanted to make it creamy you could add 1/2 cup of coconut milk.

If your paleo kids want to make this soup and you aren't happy about them using hot oil, then this soup will work perfectly well if they just throw everything in the pan and leave it to cook. The frying just adds a bit of depth to the flavour, but it won't make a massive difference if you omit that stage.
