Simple Potato and Carrot Soup
Pretty basic I know, but it's the tastiest soup ever! I grew up on soups and stews and Mum used to make a massive batch and we would eat it all week. Mums Serbian cooking was always a hit but not when we had to eat the same dish every single day.
I remember Dad cooking up his Croatian style French Toast, I have such fond memories of my childhood and that's why I am so passionate cooking the kitchen.
1 tbs olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
5 garlic cloves, crushed
salt and pepper
4-6 medium carrots, sliced
8 cups of vegetable stock
1kg potatoes, diced into chunks
2 sprigs of parsley
In a large pot, heat olive oil and saute onions with garlic. Add carrots and potato, garlic, salt and pepper and pour chicken stock. Allow to simmer for 30+ minutes. I have an induction Miele cook top which has dinner so much quicker these days. Serve this soup with crusty bread and coconut butter! Delish.
I love making my night easy and playing with our kids while dinner is cooking.
