GAPS Veggie Soup (GAPS, SCD, Grain Free, GF)

Standard

My 3 year old daughter and I started back on GAPS Intro again this week – Stage 4 to be exact – to take care of a couple of stubborn minor health issues that she has going on.  So…it’s time to rethink cooking in our house yet again…and look for good soup options.  After a visit to the farmer’s market and my own garden this week, this is what I came up with:

GAPS Veggie Soup

1 head of chopped broccoli

1 large head of cabbage, chopped in 1″ pieces

4 chopped tomatoes

3 chopped onions

4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

2 quarts of homemade beef broth (see this post from Jenny @ Nourished Kitchen with links on how you make it, and why you would want to!)

sea salt (we use Real Salt – YUM!) and pepper to taste

coconut oil for sauteeing veggies – I get mine here

Saute onions in stock pot until slightly tender.  Add broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes and beef broth.  Bring to boil and cook until veggies are tender – about 25-30 minutes.  Take pot off burner and add chopped garlic at the end.  Raw garlic is wonderful for the immune system, and you don’t want it to cook much if possible.  Add sea salt and pepper to taste before serving.   We got about 10-12 servings from this.

I served this with grilled cube steaks.  You could add ground beef or chopped chicken in the soup if you wanted.  I just did it this way… 🙂

Sorry there are no pics of the soup.  I am still getting the hang of blogging and need to pay more attention to that…and in all honesty…the soup is GONE! 🙂

About earthmuffinmom

I am a Christian mom and wife who is watching and waiting impatiently for the Lord's return in a world that is getting nuttier by the day. My main interests are in the areas of Biblical end times/eschatology and early Genesis/creation. To understand the end...you must understand the beginning! My other passion is health and healing! Our family has also been greatly blessed over the past several years with healing through natural health and diet (generally Paleo/grain free). I love sharing this information with other people, and helping folks in their healing journeys. That being said...I am not a doctor...so I'm not responsible for any decisions you may make in regards to your own health. Other stuff: I am married to a wonderful man who I have had the privilege of having three beautiful children with. We have been married for over sixteen years. I work full time, but have the blessing of working from my home, and I homeschool my oldest child. We enjoy homesteading...and while we live in a small, rural town...we have worked hard to develop our yard into a "little bit of country in town"...complete with our "farm dog," Buddy, and five chickens. Thanks for checking out my blog!
