In desperation to kill my cough and cold, I dug out every nutritous thing I could find to boil up a 20 minute vegan, cleansing soup. It may be my sick taste buds, but I think it turned out pretty delicious!
Cold Busting Vegetable Soup
Calories unknown: Did not calcuate today!
2 small potatoes, chopped
1 small yellow onion, chopped
2 large carrots, or 10 baby carrots, chopped(I had baby on hand)
1 cup frozen peas & carrots (I hate peas, I am THAT desperate)
2 cups fresh spinach
2 tsp grated ginger
15 oz. canned diced tomatoes (not drained)
15 oz. water
3 cloves mashed garlic, or equivalent in freeze-dried(this is what I had on hand)
1 tbsp freeze dried basil
1/2 tbsp chili powder (I have a SUPER spicy indian one: add more for a sinus clearing one if yours is on the tamer side)
2 tsp poultry seasoning
2 tsp montreal steak spice
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp dry chicken broth: mine is made from nutritonal yeast, not real chicken, thus, vegan. You can use any broth though!
Drop everything in a giant pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until carrots and potatoes are tender.
