Recipe: Vegetable Stock Purée (Thick Soup Base)
There, I’m glad I got that off my chest.
What’s going on here you say? Well, I decided a sugar detox was in order. I might just hate myself for making that decision…joking…a bit
As you can tell, I
might be am coming down off a Holiday Sweets sugar high. I don’t know why but this year we had more boxes of chocolates than usual and could I do the smart thing? Just give them away? No! Instead, if they were gluten free, I ate them. All of them.
The rational side of me knows that a sugar detox is an absolute necessity. My naughty side is not going down without a fight tho. And I’m caught in the middle of this epic battle.
I’m serious people. You have no idea how badly I want to bake (and of course eat) something…oh never mind…my naughty self needs to go hang her head in shame. I shall stay strong and win this duel
Okay enough with the drama already. I need to focus on good healthy comfort food now, so I decided to make some soup.
A nice warm bowl of soup and I tell you, my heart goes out to friends and family back east who are dealing with that weird cold snap. Some time in the kitchen and a bowl of warm soup is just what is needed.
Of course every good bowl of soup starts with a tasty broth. So first, let us make some broth. And I’m not saying it will be my usual Homemade Vegetable Broth. Nope, don’t need it. I already have plenty of that tucked away in the freezer.
I’m looking for a heartier soup base. Not thickened with starch either. More of a purée than a broth really. Thick like the base for a stew…now we’re talking comfort food! We’ll use the freshest ingredients we can get our hands on and oh it will be sooo warm and delicious!
The kitchen? It too will be warm. And cozy. Now just imagine the savory scent…Breath in…mmmm!
Today we will make this purée soup base and it will be good to sip all on its own.
Tomorrow we’ll add fresh veggies and maybe some meat. Then the soup then will be glorious. Quite possibly the best we’ve ever had in our life.
Bam! Take that you dang ol’ sugar detox!
