Looking for a delicious winter soup that doesn't take ages to make? Want it to be Pinterest awesome but doesn't require you to be a culinary master? Look no further! I know I have already shared one of our favourite recipes here for Coconut Curry Squash soup (still check it out - oh so yummy!) But this soup I'm talking about today is a faster and easier version (oh yes, did I mention also cheaper?)
|Yipee! It totally is a "Must Try" that is "Perfect for Homemade Soups"!|
Here's what you're going to need!
It even looks pretty when you open it!!
On the inside it it very fresh looking and tasting vegetables. I had a bite of each different vegetable to be sure this is what I wanted to make soup of. I was skeptical about buying pre-cut fresh vegetables that they would be brown, soggy or just bland tasting compared to buying whole vegetables. Everything passed as fresh and tasty.
Below is the back of the packaging with all the necessary ingredients and instructions. Just awesome.
I cooked my pot of vegetables in the broth for 20 minutes to make sure they were all good and mushy for the puree process. I learned from making baby food purees that overcooking is not a crime and actually will make your job much easier when it comes to blending everything up. I was able to use my new immersion blender that we received for Christmas from Mark and Trudy. Worked fabulously and really went well with our kitchen in its sassy red colour. :)
The immersion blender made short work of the veggies! In no time at all I was ready to add a tbsp of brown sugar and some coconut milk. Less good for you kind of ingredients but what is the point of making the soup if I don't want to eat it.

Left much more time for working on some knitting projects. I will be opening up an Etsy shop at the end of this month featuring some cozy knit items available for purchase made by yours truly. I am so excited for it! I will announce its opening here on our blog and twitter too!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Happily Hectic Household!
