Instructions and Variations:

  • add canned diced tomatoes (optional)
  • Cut all veggies in mouth-sized chunks.
  • Cook onion, garlic and leeks ~5 min in lg. stockpot in avocado oil (or other good fat)
  • Add the rest of the vegetables as well as the chicken, beef or vegetable broth, thyme and bay leaf.
  • Boil and simmer about 20 min or until vegetables are soft. Take out the bay leaf.
  • Add the chopped fresh parsley and season with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!

Note: How to prepare leeks:

  • Cut wilted parts of the green tops off.
  • Cut top part of leeks four times to split the large leaves, but keep the stalk together.
  • Wash the tops in clean water very thoroughly. Leeks tend to hold on to dirt inside the leaves of the green part.
  • Then chop all parts, including the green parts and use.
