I’m back in Seattle.
Home alone, as G won’t arrive for another few days.
It’s a little weird. What with all the family time, I don’t think I’ve been alone for more than a few hours for the past month.
When I’m home alone I go a little nutty. I do a lot of yoga. I drink a lot of tea.
I’m drinking tea right now.
I also eat the same thing for every meal because why not.
This week, my meal is soup. Root vegetable soup.
Here’s what’s in it:
- 2 boxes of low sodium vegetable broth
- 2 carrots, unpeeled
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 white onion
- 1 rutabaga
- 1 turnip
- 3 parsnips
- 2 sweet potatoes
- salt and pepper
Dice up carrot, celery and onion and cook in a tiny amount of olive oil.
After 5 minutes of cooking, add broth and bring to a simmer.
Chop remaining vegetables into bite-sized chunks and add to broth.
Simmer, adding salt, pepper, turmeric, and cayenne to taste.
Feel warm and happy inside.
I love soup. So easy to make. So easy to fill with delicious healthy vegetables. So easy to store. So easy to reheat.
