Skin Care Shape Up Soup

Here is the recipe for the soup I made for my Skin Care Shape Up Week.

Skin Care Shape Up Soup

What you need:

Tools: 

1 Large pot I use this one

1 great knife

a chopping board

Food:

I buy all the veggies at Whole Foods in the precut section right by the door.  That way I just have to dice it into small sizes but most of the work is already done.  They even have fresh diced onions!

4 large carrots

1 garlic clove

1 large onion

4 stalks celery

1/2 a green bell pepper

1/2 a red bell pepper

1 zucchini

(pretty much any veggie you like)

I also added a handful of cherry tomatoes

1 80z Vegetable stock

4 cups water

1 sprig rosemary

1 sprig sage

salt/pepper/Tapatio to taste

To do:

Dice all veggies and herbs.

In a large pot heat 1T of butter.  When butter is foamy add onions and garlic.  When onion is starts to smell really good (<– super technical here) add carrots and celery.  Veggies will start to soften add in remaining vegetables.  Stir a few times and add Vegetable stock and water.  Bring to a boil. Add herbs, salt and pepper and reduce to a simmer.  I let it simmer around 20 minutes.  Taste the broth to see if it is spicy/salty enough for your tastes.  If not, add more.  I put it in individual glass bowls with lids and put in fridge for quick meals throughout the next few days.  This makes about 4 servings and doesn’t last long in my house about 2 days because we eat it.  You could easily make a larger or smaller quantity.
