  • 1 brown onion, diced fine 
  • 1 heaped tbsp tomato paste 
  • 250g Mount Zero soup mix 
  • 1 tbsp of vegetable or chicken stock powder

Method 

  • Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the onion, carrots and celery and sauté for 5-10 minutes. 
  • Add the water, tomato paste and stock to the pot as well as the remaining vegetables. 
  • Bring to the boil and then simmer for 1-2 hours. The longer you simmer, the deeper the flavour!

Note: 

  • This recipe is high in fibre and very nutrient dense!
  • You can add bone/chicken broth also in order to give your immune system a boost and add in extra protein. 
  • Feel free to add any other vegetable you may desire and adjust the water quantity as needed.
