Whenever we have guests over for a cookout, they always ask me for my ketchup recipe. Here it is—5 ingredients, 5 minutes, and no fuss is all it takes.
Now that we have a lactose-intolerant child in the family, I have had to revamp our menu quite a bit, obviously. Soup is still my favourite way to get kids to eat their vegetables, and here is a family favourite that has shown up a few times on the menu.
Coconut Vegetable Soup
Makes about 12 cups.
3 c. chicken stock
1 can (13 oz.) lite coconut milk
1 med. onion, chopped
3-4 celery sticks, chopped
3-4 lg. carrots, chopped
2 med. potatoes, diced in ½” cubes
½ pkg. (4 patties) instant noodles
2 tsp. celtic sea salt
½ tsp. oregano
pepper, to taste
shredded cheddar or cilantro sprigs for garnish (optional)
In a large pot, place stock, coconut milk, vegetables, 1 ½ tsp. salt and oregano. Cook on MEDIUM until vegetables are crisp-tender.
Meanwhile, prepare noodles by boiling enough water to cover them (don’t put them in yet!; about 4-6 cups) with ½ tsp. salt in medium saucepan. Add noodles and cook for approximately 1-2 minutes. Move to soup pot with slotted pasta spoon.
Pepper to taste, ladle into bowls and add garnish.
Optional Variation: Add 1 c. cooked diced chicken into the soup for an even heartier meal.
