Creamy Green Soup


Warm soup. Sometimes there's nothing better on cold days. I've been eating a lot of soup lately and loving it.

This is probably the simplest and laziest soup in all history of the internet, but it's surprisingly delicious. I used frozen veggies here for convenience, but fresh would also work of course. Sometimes you just need to make life super simple, you know?

The secret to the creaminess of this soup is tahini. I use tahini in everything from dressings to pasta sauces and sweet treats, but here it works especially well to make the soup super nice and creamy. Also, what makes soup even better is to serve it with some avocado toast. Here I mashed some avocado on a freshly baked teff bread. No recipe for the bread though because it fell apart and was kind of raw inside, but it tasted really nice when toasted at least.

Sorry for the lack of measurements in this "recipe". I didn't mean to share this soup on the blog and therefore didn't measure any of the ingredients. But then the soup turned out too good not to share :) Basically just fill a really big pot with frozen veggies, I used A LOT to get lots of leftover soup for lunch boxes. Also make sure to use lots of spices, as a bland soup is simply boring.

I'm fighting a massive cold right now. And yesterday I fell with my bike when trying to cycle to work on icy streets, and then spent a few hours in the ER because of an injured wrist. So this afternoon is all about rest for me, with books and tea and kisses from my love ♥.

Have a nice weekend!
