Feel Good Cold Weather Soup with Coconut Oil

The veggies in the ingredient list are only suggestions - the ingredients shown are what I had on hand at the time.

Servings: 4-6
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 1 quart organic chicken or beef broth
  • 1 small red potato, diced
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 1/2 large white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 small carrots, chopped
  • Lemon pepper or regular black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • Handful leftover herb salad mix
  • 1 small and 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 knob fresh ginger (about 1" by 1 1/4"), peeled and minced
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Bring broth to a boil; add the veggies that need to cook longer. Example: potatoes first, boil a few minutes, celery, onion and carrot next (if you want your carrots only partly cooked and still crunchy add them in the last 10-5 minutes of cook time). Add seasoning at this point or wait until the end.

Lower heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

Add remaining ingredients.

OMG! This recipe has so many things that will kill the aspergillus fungal and candidiasis fungal infections that I have. Thank you so much for posting and for all the others. I've seen and copied so many of yours! I'm not a veggie person but recipes like this sound good and will certainly help!
Thanks Lisa

What is the herb salad mix in this soup?

This is a wonderful way to add coconut oil to the diet but I am ging to try it the other way around...saute the veggies in the coconut oil (starting with the ones that need the most cooking) then adding in the broth - and I am going to use vegetable stock for Lent - adding the diced potato in to cook as you bring to a boil and simmer and season to taste. Thanks for a great basic recipe that can be personalized in so many ways!
