Sometimes you need a healing meal to make your spirit and body feel good. For me, this Healing Vegetable Soup does just that.
Before we all go pumpkin, apple and Halloween crazy, I want to pay 1 last tribute to the awesomeness of summer!
Summer 2017 was an awesome summer of firsts. It was my first full summer being pregnant. First summer with a 2 year old (entering the terrible 2s). First summer fully moved in, settled and enjoying our new house/neighborhood.
It was the first summer in which we weren’t always going going going. Instead we took a lot more time to enjoy the little pleasures of season. Some of my favorite summer highlights were:
- Poppy eating her first sprinkle donuts
- Savoring every moment of our kid-free anniversary while our toddler attended abuelos’ spanish camp
- Watching Poppy pick and eat mulberries off the tree in our back yard
- Poppy’s first trip to the splash pad with my dad
- Poppy meeting her great grandpa for the first time
- The birth of our precious Cora
Seriously this list could go on for days! Not to mention the countless dinners al fresco, popcorn movie nights, grandma dates, and fun date night adventures.
Now it’s time to welcome the fall with 1 more family member and all of the fun that this cooler colorful season brings.
Today’s recipe is a bit of a fridge clean out meal. Specifically the last of the summer veggies. Time to use up those last few zucchinis, green beans, pretty rainbow carrots and left over potatoes to create a feel good soup.
My healing vegetable soup is a kind combination of gently cooked veggies in an herby broth with fun slurpy noodles!
Now if you don’t’ have one of the veggies in this soup, don’t worry! This recipe is very adaptable to what you have on hand. This means you can swap in different leafy greens, vegetables or different shaped pasta/grains.
So if you are in need of some healing, hydration or just want to clean out your fridge, this is the delicious recipe for you.
