Very Veggie Soup

Hi everyone! Now that Fall is around the corner, my go-to recipes are always hearty soups. Today, I will be sharing a classic veggie soup. It’s a great way to sneak all those veggies in but all you can taste is the flavorful garlic and tomatoes. It takes no time at all and is super easy. Let’s get started!

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes
  • Garlic
  • Beet
  • Ginger
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Fill a large bowl halfway with water.
  2. Place the tomatoes, beet, and carrots in the bowl.FullSizeRender-4.jpg
  3. Microwave for 6 minutes to soften the veggies.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the onion, garlic, and ginger.FullSizeRender-2.jpg
  5. Let the boiled veggies cool to room temperature.FullSizeRender-8.jpg
  6. In a food processor or Ninja blender, add the chopped veggies and about 1 cup of water.
  7. Blend until smooth.FullSizeRender-3.jpg
  8. In a big pot, pour the puree in and turn on the heat to medium.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Let the soup come to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
  11. Serve hot alongside garlic bread!FullSizeRender-10.jpgFullSizeRender-13.jpg

Suggestions, Substitutions, Tips & Tricks:

  • You can add whatever veggies you have on hand or you like. I would add more except this is all I had at the moment.
  • You can use broth instead of water.

Salad Power

Now that it’s officially summer, SaladPower is the perfect drink to cool me down! Not only is it delicious, SaladPower is such a healthy alternative to other competitor’s drinks.FullSizeRender-25.jpg

SaladPower is the healthier juice. Traditional juices in local grocery stores are loaded with calories, sugar and funky sounding added ingredients. Then the rise of the new, trendy juice craze – these juices claimed to be healthier than the traditional guys. However, these new “healthy” juices still played the same old tricks. They would show you a “green juice” and say its super healthy for you because of all the greens in it. However, most green juices are loaded with sugary fruit juice like apple or orange juice and only have a few drops of kale to make them turn green. They’re low in vitamins and high in sugar & calories.

SaladPower puts their superfood veggie blend first, their juices are packed with nutrients and much lower in sugar and calories than the competitors. All of their produce is handpicked, sustainably sourced and 100% Non-GMO certified.
