Happy Peasant Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by The Blender Girl

Hearty, nourishing, delicious, nutritious, and dead easy to make. This red potato, onion and garlic broth, which I affectionately refer to, as my “Happy Peasant Soup” (do you like the smiley face I made in my photo?) is quite simply phenomenal. This phytochemical rich garlic broth will fight off any viral vampires you have to fight, whether it be a simple cold, flu, minor infection, Candida, immune disorder, or other nasty. This soup can’t hurt and can only help – and will keep our snouts happy like every self- respecting peasant before us! It is delicious! Vampires beware!

Sorry , BG, this one didn't quite live up to the billing. Just a strong onion, garlicy odor and taste. I tried salt, over salt, salsa, and just couldn't rescue it. I loved the sound of the health benefits, but... Will continue working my way through your collection; so far, mostly wonderful, especially your vegan mousse.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/400°F.
  2. Place the whole unpeeled garlic bulbs in a small tray and bake for about 30 minutes.
  3. Parcook the potatoes in boiling water for about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir fry the onions until caramelized.
  5. Bring the veggie stock to the boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes, and then add the drained potatoes.
  6. Squeeze the roasted garlic pulp into the soup, season to taste, and stir through.
  7. Simmer for about 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked through, and the flavours infuse.
  8. Pulse very briefly with a hand blender so still relatively chunky and rustic.
  9. Garnish with parsley and serve. YUM!
