The most protective vegetables known to cancer research are all in this delicious and easy to make soup. For the canned tomatoes I use Muir Glen Diced Tomatoes / no salt added. There’s not much juice in the can so I do not drain it. - Jenny Jones

    … chopped onions in butter
    … 1 crushed garlic clove
    … 1 tbsp chopped parsley or parsley flakes
    … 1 tbsp paprika (this gives colour to liquid)
    … immediately stir/mix in carrots coins
    … 1/2 pot cold water
    … salt/pepper
    Bring to boil, then reduce heat-cook until carrots almost tender (30 + min)
    … then add:
    … cubed potatoes (white or sweet potatoes ) (or both)
    … 1 can peas (add juice too) (gives soup good flavour)
    … any other veggies you have on hand (cauliflower, thinly sliced cabbage, frozen peas) add broccoli last)

    I love your approach and how you share your delicious recipes Jenny, and have shared you to many of my friends. I try to make this kind of soup weekly. I don’t even saute the onions and garlic, just throw it all in raw. If I have on hand, I also add a turnip, celery, green beans, zucchini, sm seeded Jalapeno, and even some spinach at the end. I personally don’t do well with tomatoes, so I leave them out of mine. So yummy, easy and super good for you.
