Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was swell!
It was Hallo-weekend over here, and if you know Halloween, things can get a little crazy.
I had plans to go out, but since it was basically a monsoon, I decided it was better to take a rest weekend and not get drenched in a tiny Halloween costume.
It was nice to have a simple and relaxing weekend instead.
It’s my recipe for vegan fudge. You don’t want to miss it!
Back to the weekend. I got in a nice walk, which actually it only lasted about 5 minutes, because it started pouring. And my hair was getting ruined, I won’t have any of that happening. I’m high maintenance…
When I got home after being in the rain, all I wanted was to make some hot soup to eat.
I had a few parnsips and sweet potatoes in the fridge and decided to combine the two for a simple soup.
Parsnip and Sweet Potato Soup
- 1 large sweet potato (chopped into cubes)
- 1 large parsnip (chopped into cubes)
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 cups low sodium vegetable stock
- 1 cup cannellini beans
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon curry spice
- a dash of salt and pepper (to your preferred taste)
Roast the sweet potato in the coconut oil at 400 for 40 minutes, half way through mix around and add the parsnips.
While the veggies are roasting, add the broth to a pot and bring to a boil, add the cannellini beans and spices.
Once the veggies are done, combine the veggies into the broth mixture and allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes.
To finalize, simply process or blend the soup ingredients together and serve!
This was perfect for the cold evening and let’s face it soup is the perfect comfort food!
The rest of the day was spent in relaxation mode, watching scary movies with my sister. Now who’s ready for a marvelous giveaway?
