I call this meal a health pack.

A completely health balanced meal all by itself and just what the doctor recommends.

A merger of most of all those vegetables you give a passing look at or just pick with two fingers but I am bringing to us in a very eye catching, mouth watering enticing aroma and health enhancing plater.

Join me to the market as we gather our ingredients for this adventurous experience of a meal.

  • a couple or so of parsnip will do. This vegetable is a relation of carrots and we will need to peel and dice before use.
  • Some turnips, it’s a root crop and very healthy.
  • Daikon, you may want to use radish instead as they are related, or both still.
  • Radish. The more vegetables the merrier.
  • The root and leaf of parsley, we got lots of essential oils and minerals with this one.
  • Scallions, he is a brother to onions.
  • Eggplants, two of thus can play good.
  • Leek, the leaf sheaths are the edible part.
  • Cauliflower, the white bulb is what ee need in our soup.
  • Broccoli, bulb and stem if you want.
  • A bulb of onion.
  • some firm tomatoes
  • Garlic, hmm this is going to spicy.
  • Ginger. I said it, spicy.
  • Bell and Scott bonnet peppers. Now don’t go scorching your pallet with peppers.
  • Seasonings and salt.
  • Turmeric, you may want to stick to just a teaspoon of its powdery form.
  • for carbs let’s add some Irish potatoes.
  • And for protein, meat. Any form of thus you choose is OK but I like this soup best with either fresh fish or goat meat.

I told you this soup is a balanced meal all by itself. Do you still doubt me?

Market time over and kitchen time on.

Note that the nutritional benefits of vegetables are derived best when they are eating raw or half cooked so for best advantage of this soup, we don’t want to overcook our soup. Medium raw is ok. This is why the meat has to be tender first before adding the vegetables.

This soup can be served to a sick person, children, aged, pregnant women, as after surgery meal, or just a meal to boost your immunity reduce/delay aging.

It is a complete meal on its own and you do not need to add any thing else to it if you wish not to and the nutritional value is all encompassing.

Go ahead and try it out and see if you don’t feel younger and as always, we will like to know how you went about it as well as all the details of your adventure with this meal.
