Boost Your Immune System with Healthy Nutrients
There’s nothing like a bowl of hot vegetable soup to fill you up with healthy nutrients. My recipe for “feel good soup” is not only super tasty but also easy to make. I call it that way because it can boost your immune system when you’re feeling low, and its balanced ingredients make it a whole meal. To this soup, I add pearl barley, which contains a type of soluble fiber called Beta glucan (also found in oats) that helps reduce raised blood cholesterol levels and stabilizes blood sugar levels.
Feel Good Vegetable Soup Recipe
1 small turmeric root
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 medium sweet potato
50g pearl barley
1 cup frozen peas (130g)
1 cup spinach
1.5 liters stock/water
1 teaspoon olive oil
Cut the onion, carrot, mushrooms, and turmeric root. Heat the olive oil in a large pot and cook the vegetables with a pinch of salt and pepper until they have softened and developed some fragrance and flavor.
Add the potatoes, sweet potato and pearl barley to the pot. Pour in 1.5 liters of stock/water, then cover and simmer for about 40 minutes.
Finally, stir in the frozen peas and spinach and cook for another 10-15 minutes until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together.
