Soup is such an easy and affordable way to feed your family healthy.  And this soup is a great last minute meal, as its quick to make!

 

 

 

This meal is cheap, dirt cheap if you make your own chicken broth.

Spicy Carrot Soup

2 L chicken broth (9 cups)

14 large carrots

1 T chili powder (more if you like spicy)

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp coriander

Salt

 

Cook carrots in the broth on the stove until soft.  Purée in the blender or use an immersion blender.  Enjoy.

Mushroom Soup (gaps friendly, dairy and gluten free)

I don’t have any beautiful photos to show off for this soup, besides my daughter inhaling it!

This soup developed after I made a batch of homemade chicken broth and had a hankering for mushroom soup (which I haven’t had in years!)

This soup was delicious!

Here’s the recipe:

1 liter of  (4 1/2 c) homemade chicken broth

(I’m heavy on salt for broth so I didn’t add any to the soup)

16 oz mini Bella mushrooms

2 smashed cloves of garlic

 

Cook on stove until mushrooms are done.  Blend and serve.
