Meatless Monday’s are officially back here at Living Lou! So be ready… every Monday a meatless, vegetarian meal will be coming your way! They can be anything from salads, to soups, to pastas! And the best part is that not only is it good for your body to eat less meat, but it also benefits the environment!
Ah… fall is in the air! Autumn, or fall, is definitely my favourite season… When I think of fall I think of; soup, snuggling in front of the TV as all of my favorite shows come back, Thanksgiving and of course fall fashions!
And with my lovely introduction about my love of fall, I give you a recipe for a delicious, hearty fall soup!
3 tbsp butter
1 onion (chopped)
1 stalk of celery (chopped)
8 medium potatoes (peeled & chopped)
milk (enough to cover soup. This is the liquid for the soup!)
cracked pepper to taste
1/2 tsp oregano
Wash and chop the onion, celery and potatoes.
Heat the butter in a pan, and saute onion and celery on low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent.
Once celery and onion is finished cooking, move to a large pot. Add in potatoes and oregano. Cover with milk. Simmer covered for 30 minutes, be careful not to burn the soup!
Once done cooking, using an immersion blender, puree the soup to your desired consistency! If it’s too thick, add some water. Grind in some freshly cracked pepper to taste.
Garnish with fresh chives!
There you have it, the perfect soup to warm your soul during the upcoming cold season!
