Farmers Market Recipe: Winter Vegetable Soup


Winter Vegetable Soup1 medium onion

1 garlic bulb

3 celery stalks

green onions

1 small potato

1 small sweet potato

8 baby portabella buttons

6-8 cups of water

1 tblsp olive oil


salt, pepper, cayenne, parsley, cilantro, rosemary, basil, tarragon, paprika, ginger root

Cooking Instructions:

Heat the water in a soup pot.  Once the water is boiling, add the oil, salt, pepper, cayenne and paprika.  Basically, just mince all ingredients, place it all in the soup and bring to a boil.  I use a larger amount of parsley and cilantro (1/2 a cup to 1 cup, chopped), so I add this in with the veggies.  Add the chopped ginger root as well.  After the soup is back to a boil, it may be turned down  to a simmer and cooked to preference.  When the soup is ready to serve, turn off the flame and stir in the remaining herbs.  Serve with bread.
