Winter Vegetable Soup

This is one of the few recipes on my blog (infact, it might even be the first) that I have concocted myself.  I neglected to write down the quantities as I made it, so hopefully I’ve remembered right!  It won’t be too far off, anyway.

This is a really tasty and nourishing soup, and full of fibre so you won’t need a massive bowl of it.  I served it with freshly baked homemade continental bread topped with futter.

Like most soups, this one will thicken the longer you leave it.  It freezes well too – the photo below was taken post-freeze, so it’s thicker than when it was first cooked.  Thin it down with more almond milk or water if need be.

Winter Vegetable Soup

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp vegetable stock powder
  • 1 bulb fennel
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 celeriac
  • 4 Jerusalem artichokes
  • 2 kohlrabi
  • 1-2 cups almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)


Roughly chop all vegetables.  Melt the coconut oil in a frypan, add the onion.  Cook for a few minutes until onion is soft.  Add the garlic, cook for a few minutes.  Add the rest of the vegetables and cook until soft, stirring regularly.

When the vegetables are soft, transfer to a blender or food processor and blend in batches with a portion of the almond milk to desired consistency.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Garnish with fresh fennel leaves if desired.
