Boy. It sure is cold out there! Monday is going to be -2 degrees but I bet you already knew that.
Winter, you sure got a chokehold on us this time around! The radio announced that the groundhog did NOT see his shadow and so therefore we're due for an early spring. Can I get a hallelujah?
You know what would warm up your insides in the meantime? Potato Soup! Try my recipe below. It shan't disappoint.
Vegan Potato Soup
6 potatoes- cubed
4 carrots- cubed
2 celery ribs- diced
2 C water
1/2 C canned coconut milk
1-2 garlic cloves
1/2 red onion
1 Tbs nutritional yeast
dash of red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
extra virgin olive oil
Heat olive oil in a large pot. I prefer glass pots or cast iron. Saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add potatoes and carrots and cook for a few minutes. Stirring occasionally. Then add water, coconut milk and spices. Bring to a boil, simmer for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Put half of the soup in a blender. Return to pot and mix with chunky potato goodness.
Serves 4-6 people, depending on portions!
***Correction. Groundhog Day is Feb 4th, so the radio lied to me! Let's call it more of a prediction.
