Stewy soup

Updated: Mar 13

Our Potato Leek soup was a big hit. We sold out everyday at the store. So I decided to play with the potato and came up with a soup that is as thick as a stew. I was interested in incorporating the cumin seed and some paprika. You know I'm always trying to introduce some variety and diversity into our foods!

1 chopped onion - about 1 cup

1 c chopped peppers - a mix of colors is nice

1/2 c chopped celery or leeks

5 cloves of crushed garlic

1 tsp cumin seeds crushed

1 tsp paprika and 1 tsp smoked paprika

1 bay leaf

1 large tomato that have been chopped into cubes (canned if you need a shortcut is fine)

3 large red potatoes diced into bite size pieces and cooked the day before

5 cups veggie stock

2 cups organic chickpeas (if you are using the canned ones, rinse and drain)

Favorite greens chopped - about 2 cups

1 c muun chi CoCoFir

Sauté the onion, garlic, celery, peppers, bay leaf with the cumin and paprika for about 4 min. Add your tomatoes and cooked potatoes, and veggie stock. Let the flavors combine for 5 minutes. Add the cooked chickpeas, chopped greens and muun chi CoCoFir (try using the lemon chia for the added zinc!) Salt and pepper to taste.

I love to get creative with this dish. I think it has hints of a spanish stew I had once while traveling in Europe. The cumin brings out so many wonderful flavors in the veggies. As for health benefits, the cumin is a magical powerhouse. It is packed with iron, may help control blood sugar levels and blood cholesterol. There are so many wonderful benefits hidden in our spices and herbs. I try and use the seeds whenever possible, and in this case finding cumin seeds is easy. Go ahead and try toasting them too to add a little roastiness to your stew. This weather has been perfect for all our soup lovers. And there are a lot of you out there!

You know how much I love beets, don't you? The funny thing is that my love for them has very little to do with how they taste. My love for them comes from knowing how much they have changed my life.
