Pureed Ginger Vegetable Soup
This makes a large pot of soup - it is great for leftovers and freezing. If you use a stick blender, this is a one-pot meal. If not, it will be a blender + one-pot meal.
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 16 oz pkg baby carrots
  • 5 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 sweet onions, chopped
  • 2 zucchinis, chopped
  • 1 small pkg sliced mushrooms
  • 2 - 12 oz pkgs frozen cauliflower
  • 1 pkg frozen spinach
  • 32-48 oz vegetable broth
  • 1 jar spaghetti sauce
  • Fresh ginger, minced (small or large piece depending on how much you like ginger)
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Put olive oil, carrots, onions and celery into a big pot on medium high heat, and cook until the onions get a little color on them.
  2. Add the zucchinis, mushrooms, cauliflower, spinach, spaghetti sauce and enough broth to cover the veggies.
  3. Bring the soup to a simmer, and then add ginger.
  4. Simmer until the carrots are tender, stirring occasionally. A large pot of soup may take 2 hours to cook completely.
  5. Remove from heat, and let cool enough to make it easy and safe to work with. Using a stick blender, puree the soup. If you do not have a stick blender, pour the soup into your blender (in batches), and puree.
  6. Add salt, pepper and lemon juice to taste.
Feel free to experiment with this soup. Add the veggies you have on hand and the seasoning you like best. It is a great way to get a variety of veggies in one meal.
