So, we're all sick. Well, all except me, the momma bird. So, I've been busy trying to take care of everyone and doing lots and lots of yucky laundry.
But, I do have one quick recipe for you! I made this super healthy soup tonight, and it is really tasty, and full of immune-boosting ingredients.
Julie's Immunity Soup
2 tbsp olive oil
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1 med. onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 stalks celery, chopped
2 parsnips/ carrots, diced
1 tsp each: dried oregano, thyme, mustard seeds
2 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 cup amaranth
5 1/2 cups water or veg. broth
2 dried bay leaves
1 1/2 cups aduki beans
In a large saucepan, heat oil over med. heat. Add garlic, onion, ginger, celery, parsnips/ carrots, oregano, thyme, mustard seeds, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Saute for about 5 minutes, until onions are softened. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, for about half an hour.
Optional: Add 1 cup of frozen peas in last minutes of cooking.
(P.S. *waving* Hi! I'm Julie! Believe it or not, VegMomma is not my real name. Tee hee!)
Happy Thanksgiving, American neighbours!
Stay healthy everyone.
