Potato Vegetable Soup
Want a filling delicious potato soup that’s got a bit of a kick to it? If you’re doing a potato cleanse like a Mary’s Mini this soup is perfect - tweak the spices if you’d like - but whatever you do - make a big old pot to last you a few days! When I was doing my Mary's Mini I had this for lunch pretty much every day and never got sick of it.
Serves: A shit load. Seriously. It probably serves at least 8 giant bowls or more.
2 yellow onions, diced
4 medium carrots, sliced
4 celery stalks, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
8 russet potatoes, cubed
4 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cups water
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chilli powder
Salt & Pepper to your liking
Get a giant ass pot ready. Seriously - this makes a TON of soup. Heat the pot up and splash in some water. Saute the onions, carrots, celery, and garlic until everything softens up a tinge.
Toss in all your liquid stuff, then the potatoes, then spices, stir that up real good and crank up the heat to get that bad-boy boiling.
Cover the pot, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft enough to eat.
Ladle 5 or 6 scoops of the soup into a high-speed blender - make sure it’s a good mixture of liquid and solids. Be careful as hot liquid in a blender can burst - keep your hand on top and let the steam release every 5 seconds or so. Puree and mix back into the soup. Stir the hell out of it. Puree more if you want it creamier - I like to keep some chunks in it.
Add any extra spices you want - serve - blow on it till it’s cool enough to SMASH INTO YOUR FACE.
This really does make a giant-ass pot, so if you don't want this much you can reduce it by half.
I topped this with nutritional yeast and some splashes of hot sauce. Holy shit balls did that make a difference.
