RECIPE: Potato Soup - A Delicious, Paleo, Dairy Free and Gluten Free Delight!

Fond-potato-soup

Growing up in chilly Chicago and the crisp Northeast, soup season brings with it savory aromas and sweet memories.

Traditionally soups were made with bone broth and pureed vegetables, but most of the soups we're familiar with today come out of a carton or aluminum can.

Many of them have preservatives, thickeners such as corn starch or are loaded with dairy to stretch a meal. Now as a mom of three boys I have nothing against choosing a convenient option - but it can't come at the cost of my family's health (more costly in the long run by far). I many ways FOND is my gift to the Nourishers - the ones who make the meals and care for their family's nutrition. This recipe is an excellent choice for anyone needing a filling meal without the fillers. Enjoy something delicious, something to nourish. 

RECIPE: Potato Soup - makes 6 mugs, 4 bowls

  • 3 organic carrots - chopped
  • 2 organic celery stalks - chopped
  • 1/2 organic white onion - chopped
  • 2 TB ghee or olive oil
  • 8 - 9 organic potatoes diced (I choose red)
  • 2 Jars of Youth Tonic
  • Pinch of paprika, sprinkle of parsley

Method: 

 Put your chopped veggies in the bottom of your favorite soup pot. Pour the ghee or olive oil over them and toss with a wooden spoon, coating the vegetables lightly. Simmer these vegetables on low (until they release there aroma) for about 15 minutes. Then add the potatoes and pour over the broth. Two jars of Youth Tonic should cover the entire vegetable bunch. If it doesn't add up to 4 oz of water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low for another 10 minutes. Using an immersion blender or standing blender puree the mixture (in batches if you need to, I did). Pour back into the soup pot and adjust flavor as needed. Ladle into bowls or mugs and add your dash of paprika and sprinkle of parsley flakes to the top of each one.

It takes 25 minutes to get this soup on the table. During that time I like to slice complimentary fruit or prepare an additional meat like sausage. Let me know what you think!

Here's to something simple, something delicious, something to nourish!
