Basic 4 Ingredients Soup Recipe

This basic 4 ingredients soup recipe really is the easiest soup in the history of soups. All you have to do is literally put the 4 ingredients in a pan, add enough water to cover generously, add some herbs and freshly ground black pepper if you wish, and cook until soft. This soup is vegan, grain-free, gluten-free, oil-free, salt-free, nut-free. The magic of this soup is that you can substitute the potatoes or the carrots for what ever vegetables are in season, or more accurately, what ever you have in your fridge.

Method

  • Put the potato cubes, carrot slices, chopped onion and crushed garlic in a saucepan. Add the water, and if you wish, some freshly ground black pepper and herbs.
