Turmeric Tomato Detox Soup

Oh my fuck, people, this is tasty damn soup!!!

Now, let’s go over a few things for the ingredients. I forgot to buy a damn onion apparently, so I’m sure this tastiness is ten times better with a real onion rather than the chopped dried onion I used. Also, they say a small onion, but I didn’t see any small onions that weren’t pearl at my store, which is probably why I forgot to grab one in the first place. Or I may have thought I still had half an onion in the fridge, which I did but then threw out because it didn’t look very pretty. At any rate, still fucking tasty with the dried onion bits. I used about a handful. Everything else I did exactly as the recipe called for.

I heated the oil, onion, and garlic on a low setting to start because coconut oil has a 125 degree smoke point and I didn’t feel like setting off the smoke detector. Once I added the rest, I turned the heat up to medium to bring it to a boil before taking it back down to low to simmer. I also let it simmer just a tad longer.

  1. First off, cool new website design!
    Seems making tasty homemade soup seems to the the trending 2016 resolution. I just made pumpkin soup last night because I had 7/8 of a can of pumpkin left over after giving some to my cat Bebe as a laxative. It really works, but feed only 1 tablespoon at a time.

    I too had just 1/2 onion in the fridge, but it was still short of lab quality, so I used that and altered the recipe slightly due to the smaller amount of pumpkin: no water, just a full can of chicken broth. 1/2 cup of evap milk (didn’t have any so I made my own–just simmer milk until 60% of the water is gone. 1 1/4 cups milk reduces down to 1/2 cup evaporated; yes, I googled and learned how to make evaporated milk last night). Added LOTS of pepper, my fav spice. Also red pepper flakes which made it really spicy hot. And a little Old Bay. I think that was really the secret ingredient. It was delicious! Second soup I’ve ever made, easier even than split pea. And takes far less time to cook. I’m calling it Bebe’s Punkin Soup. I usually call her an eggplant because she looks like one, but I’ll start calling her Punkin from time to time.
    If you try this let me know what you think–alter it to your taste and what you have on hand, of course.
    I’m going to make yours as soon as I get the ingredients in a day or two.
    Happy Soup Year!

    • Wow, Chaz, that sounds yummy! And I’m impressed with the evap milk even if you Googled it. LOL Let me know what you think of this soup. Happy Soup Year!!! =D

Have something to say? Jot it down. I dare you. ;)
