This Healing Soup Is Really Special!
By: Rowanna Watson
This is my go-to vegan soup for the soul. I’ve witnessed it do some magical things to both my kids, friends, and family. Plus it’s tasty and can be enjoyed smooth or chunky.
I’ve found that younger kids prefer it smooth, while teenagers and adults prefer it chunky.
It can be enjoyed at any time in the year. But it’s especially enjoyable at the change of the seasons.

What It’s Good For
An excellent source of vitamin K, folate, potassium, and fibre.
A chemical called quercetin in onions may have anti-cancer properties.
Parsley is a great detox herb that’s known for improving bladder and kidney health. Filled with antioxidants and vitamin k, parsley is an important part of this recipe.
Potatoes are filled with fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6. Some studies show that potatoes are great for your good gut bacteria. They’re also extremely filling.
Leeks are rich in flavonoids, known to be health-promoting. As well as being filled with antioxidants, and vitamins A, C, and K (important for helping your blood to clot).
Garlic is often used to fight a cold or flu, and should be seen as more of a medicine than a food. Throughout history, we’ve used garlic to heal. In fact, one study found that one garlic supplement a day cut the chances of catching a cold by 63%.
The bright red color of tomatoes is due to their lycopene content. An antioxidant that can protect you from the sun, improve heart health, and some studies have shown that tomatoes may have cancer-fighting properties.
