I have been helping my dad on his Daniel Fast the past few days. He loves it! He is only eating fruits and vegetables and he feel so good that he does not want to break the fast. He has felt some detox symptoms but slowly and steady he is getting better each day. I have been cooking some simple vegetable soups for him to stay warm in this super cold winter in Iceland. Brr…it´s so cold! But I am so proud of myself to stay 100% raw even though is´t so freezing. My dad loves the soups I have made for him so far and they just get better and better each time I make a new one. I wanted to share with you the recipe that is his favorite in the moment. Enjoy this recipe and have a wonderful day!
1 small or medium head of celery root
3 large stalks of celery
4 large carrots
1 small head of broccoli
1/2 of a medium head of cauliflower
1 medium or small red onion
2 large tbsp of vegetable stock
3 cm or more of fresh ginger (optional)
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp dried Coriander
1 tsp Paprika powder
salt and pepper to taste (optional)
Cut all you vegetables into small bite size pieces and chop your red onion. In a large soup pot pour 1 cup of water and heat for about 2-3 minutes or until the water is warm. Add in the onion, vegetable stock, grated ginger and spices and simmer for about 5-7 minutes. Add half or more of you celery and carrots to this and let simmer for another 3-5 minutes adding water if you needed. Pour in 1 litre of water and warm it up. Add in the rest of you vegetables and stir (add more water if needed). Let the soup come to a boil and boil for 15-20 minutes. Finally add 1-2 cups of the soup into your blender and blend until smooth and pour back into your pot of soup. Stir and serve or better yet put the soup in the fridge for 12-24 hours and eat it tomorrow, then all the spices and flavours if the vegetables have blended even better together. Perfect!
Keep in mind that you can make this soup and keep in the refrigerator for about 7 days in a air tight container. This is the perfect soup for busy people how want to stay healthy during this cold winter.
