Simple summer soup

When I want to combine all the flavours of summer this is the soup I crave. Simple, tasty and flexible.SAM_1760 (Small)

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 carrot, chopped

2-3 new potatoes, scrubbed, halved and sliced thickly

1 zucchini, chopped

Handful of green beans

2 tomatoes

6 cups water/vegetable stock

1 C fresh basil leaves

1/2 roasted cashews

  • Roast the cashews in a medium oven for ~ 10 mins (watch them carefully).
  • Saute onion, garlic and carrot. Add potatoes and water/stock and bring to the boil. After five minutes add zucchinis, beans and tomatoes and simmer until potatoes are cooked.
  • Blend half the soup with roasted cashews and fresh basil.
  • Season well.
  • Serve with walnut parmesan and fresh basil leaves.

Psst parmesan used to be my cover-up-anything-solution and was one of the last types of dairy I stopped eating. Thankfully this walnut/yeast alternative not only tastes great, it comes without the high acidic rating of its dairy cousin.
