This week has been rough; emotionally, physically and well.....all around! So what better to do for myself than run a lavender bath and eat a big bowl of yummy healthy soup!
I started off the broth with some filtered water and better than bouillon the vegan no chicken base...got that a boiling while I added some local organic chopped up carrots, leeks, and whole garlic cloves (as many as you can stand, they are good for you darnit!)
I got that a rollin then I added an entire 2 oz. package of dulse flakes, its a red algae high in fiber and protein and just darn delicious. I then added a handfull of dried shitake mushrooms, how can you go wrong with some shitake mushrooms? YOU CANT!!
Finally when all the veggies were tender and delicious I added a bit of cous cous I had in the cubbord to add a little filler to the soup. I didnt add salt because I didnt think it needed it, but you definitely can! I added about a TBLSP of black pepper.....
