How to Make Healing Vegetable Soup
- Heat a large soup pot on medium and add oil. Let heat for a few minutes. Add chopped onion and a pinch of salt. Let cook down for a few minutes until onion is soft. Add remaining vegetables, dried herbs, salt and pepper and let cook down for about 10 minutes or so.
- Add liquid of choice and turn the heat up to high. Bring to a boil. Once it is boling, cover with a lid and reduce heat to medium/low. Stir occasionally. Let cook for about an hour or so. You can always add more liquid if it becomes too thick. For this vegetable soup, you want it to be rather liquidy.
- Don't forget to taste throughout the cooking time to see if it needs more seasonings. Also, add fresh herbs when it is almost done. Parsley is amazing in this soup, along with dill.
