“THYME” TO EAT HEALTHY!

Karina’s Super-Healthy Thyme, Carrot and Garlic soup with Supergrains Bread!

IMG_7474

Ingredients:

  • 1 litre vegetable stock
  • 900 g carrots, sliced into rough cubes (don’t peel the carrot, just rinse it well and chop the ends off)
  • 2 large pink or red onions, roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed and finely chopped
  • 200 g sweet potato, roughly cubed
  • 1 stalk celery, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

To Serve:

  • 1 small bunch of fresh thyme, leaves picked, to serve each person
  • 1/2 teaspoon of tabasco sauce, to serve each person
  • A tiny drizzle of olive oil, to serve each person
  • 3 small slices of Supergrains bread, lightly toasted, to serve each person

Method:

Add one tablespoon of olive oil to a large pot, then place on the stove. Turn the heat to medium. Wait for a few seconds, until the oil heats slightly, then add your onions and stir fry for 1 minute only. After 1 minute is over, add your garlic, then stir fry for 20 seconds, until aromatic.

Once aromatic, add your vegetable stock, your carrots and sweet potato. Bring this to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes, or until just under cooked.

Once the 10 minutes are over, add your celery, then cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. One the 5 minutes are over, turn your stove to ‘off.’

Lightly toast your bread.

Compiling the beauty:

Ladle your soup into a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle a little olive oil and tabasco sauce over your soup. Finish by sprinkling your thyme leaves over your soup.

Serve with lovely toasted supergrains bread!

Serves 4 as a light meal

Enjoy!

    Hmmm Tabasco in soup – I had not thought of that, but will try when the soup season kicks off.
    I make something very similar, but without celery and use turmeric, but Tabasco is inspired – thanks for posting
