Island-inspired Veggie Potato Soup
- 2 tsp coconut oil or avocado oil
- 2 medium yellow onions about 1.5-2 cups
- 3-4 medium to large carrots about 2-2.5 cups
- 5 large celery sticks
- 1 can fire-roasted tomatoes or pureed red pepper 14.5 oz can – no salt added
- 4 medium russet potatoes or sweet potatoes
- 4 large garlic cloves
- 2-3 liters veggie stock
- 2 cans great northern beans or cannellini Garbanzos taste great in this recipe as well!
- 1 can coconut milk
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 2 handfuls spinach
- 2-3 tbsps salt if you didn’t add any salt to your veggie stock
- grated ginger
- 1-2 tbsp red thai curry paste optional
- puree a portion of the soup prior to adding okra & parsley
- 1-2 cups frozen or freshly cut okra
- 1 tbsp fresh parsley
- 2 cinnamon sticks optional
- Start off by washing all of your produce. Follow by peeling your potatoes and reserving in water before cutting.
- Small-medium dice all your veggies except your jarred peppers, okra, spinach, and ginger. Your parsley will be finely minced if adding.
- Add your coconut oil to your stock pot and proceed to add your onions. Allow them to caramelize for a few minutes (approx. 5 minutes) with the lid on. Stir and add a small amount of water if needed and follow with your carrots and celery. Reduce to medium/low.
- Allow the veggies to cook for approximately 10-15 minutes and proceed to add in your garlic, curry paste, and cinnamon until fragrant and proceed with veggie broth.
- Puree your peppers with a bit of the water from the peppers. Reserve.
- Next, dice your potatoes into small/medium dice and add them. Add your coconut milk and pureed peppers (or tomatoes) and bring to a boil. Follow with your beans. As the broth comes to a boil, using your microplane, grate your ginger over either your cutting board (if you are nervous about dropping it into the soup) or over your soup. I enjoy adding a lot.
- Once your potatoes have cooked remove from heat. Using an immersion blender, blend a small amount of your soup before adding herbs, spinach, or okra.
- Next, add in your frozen chopped okra and allow to come to a boil if consuming right away, or keep the heat off if freezing. Top with your parsley and allow to cool in a shallow pan. Season to taste. Serve & enjoy!
