The Easiest Soup Ever (by Evelyn)

Have you ever been super hungry, absolutely did not feel like cooking, and therefore made something from a recipe so easy that you thought it couldn’t be very good?  Today I found a soup recipe in a 20+ year old cookbook that I recently bought in a second hand bookstore that can be prepared in 5 minutes flat and is delicious.
But first a note about modifications:  I decided to double the recipe and put it in my food processor before cooking it.  The second I turned on the food processor a lot of the liquid went flying all over the counter and cabinets because the food processor was too full.  So I dumped what was left in a pot, added a tablespoon of turmeric, brought the contents to a boil, let it simmer 3-4 minutes and then used my immersion blender to make it creamy.  So here to the best of my knowledge is how to make this soup:

Fast Vegetable Cream Soup
adapted from recipe in The High Road to Health by Lindsay Wagner & Ariane Spade
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen vegetables (I used a mixture of frozen broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots from Costco called Normandy Blend)
  • 1/2 cup sesame tahini
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 TB low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 TB turmeric

Put all into a pot and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 3-4 minutes.  Blend with immersion blender.  I tried this recipe in my Blendtec and it was too smooth for my liking.
Trust me, this is very, very tasty and gets an RVEasy rating!

  2. I made the soup again, but this time using my new Blendtec, and didn't care for it. The immersion blender leaves more texture whereas the Blendtec makes the soup just too smooth.

  3. I don't have a gas cooktop in my RV, I only use small electric appliances. I think I can make this in my slow-cooker/crockpot. I have a small high speed blender, but may need to get an immersion blender. I found this blog through Lyne - Thanks to all of you for the recipes.
