Chunky Vegetable Soup
- Cooking and Prep: 12 h
- Serves: 6
Prepare the Vegetable Soup
Heat one tablespoon oil in a pot on medium heat. Add onion and a sprinkle of salt and sauté for about eight minutes or until softened.
Add chopped fennel and sauté another five minutes. Then add garlic and salt and sauté for two minutes.
Add all the chopped veggies besides the mushrooms and chickpeas.
Add six to seven cups of water or enough to cover an inch above the vegetables. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover and simmer for an hour and a half, stirring occasionally.
In a separate frying pan, heat one tablespoon of oil and sauté the sliced mushrooms. Once the soup is cooked, add the mushrooms and chickpeas. Cook an additional 15 minutes.
Add salt or pepper to taste. If soup is too thick, add a little boiling water. If soup is too thin, simmer uncovered for a few minutes to thicken.
Enjoy this soup with some eggs or fish and avocado for a light but filling meal.
