This veggie soup came together so quickly and the entire family had more than one bowl. I “jammed it,” as we say, so please use this recipe as a guideline and get creative.

Before even chopping the veggies I prepared the Paleo dinner rolls with tapioca starch and coconut flour. Easy, peasey, gluten-free.

Ingredients
Paleo Rolls, Veggie soup8 cups homemade bone broth
4 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp minced garlic and ginger
Half head cabbage, chopped
2 cups pre-soaked and cooked small red beans*
Oil
Bay leaves
Sea salt
Couple handfuls of baby spinach
About 5 chopped mushrooms
A few Tbsp Braggs Soy Sauce
3-4 green onions, chopped
Red Miso paste (if you like it)

 

Method:

Fry carrots, cabbage, garlic and ginger in oil.

Add broth, salt, bay leaves

Cook until carrots are slightly tender.

Add green onions, mushrooms and spinach.

When the soup is done, add the soy sauce/miso paste

The timing was perfect for us–hot rolls ready at the same time as the soup. I love when Bug says “encore”!

*preparing your own dry beans by soaking them over night and maybe even cooking them in bone broth is more nutritious than a can, but impossible to swing if you didn’t plan ahead. I personally didn’t and was thrilled to have a 19 oz/540 ml can of small red beans on hand.

We didn’t know we’d have a family bed or we’d have done some things differently. For example, when Babe was a few months old, we probably wouldn’t have bought the thousand dollar Queen pillow-top. King, no frame was the way to go. When it was just Babe, Papa and I, the new Queen was plenty [...]

Perpetual Bone Broth

I spent my teenagehood as a vegetarian. From an ethical and spiritual standpoint, I do not think consuming animals is… Acceptable. I just want to put that out there. With that said, I’ve been eating meat again for a number of years and do not think tofu is real food. I no longer think it’s [...]

I’ve been either pregnant or nursing (or both!) for more than four years. My body has gone through many changes. I do not have many stretch marks but my belly button is a little saggy. I’m thinner than I was before I became a mom, though my hips have widened. What size of bra and [...]
