Easy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder

Hungry? Would you like a bowl of creamy and delicious soup? Well, I invite you to be a chef. But don’t worry. I have a few easy quick soup recipes which even a person who never cooks can master. Ready?

First, we need bone broth. It will be our soup base. Why? Because of beef and chicken bone broth health benefits!

Are you vegetarian or a vegan? I am sure you have veggie broth in the fridge.

Well, now what?

We will not be making or cooking soup. Let’s think outside the “pot!”

So, we will be improvising and “constructing” the soup. Yes! You heard me right—“constructing” like a Lego toy.

The main key point: we want to preserve the vitamins, enzymes, and minerals from all the amazing seasonal vegetables.

How will we do it?

Two methods:

  1. We will “soak” vegetables in the heated broth for a few minutes.
  2. We will use Vitamix and the power of its motor.

So, shall we begin?

Easy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth And Ten Minute Wonder

1. Raw Vegetable Soup with Kelp

Are you curious about the “construction” of the soup?

I have been doing it for 15 years, and often I use ingredients that most people don’t.

Well, do you enjoy sea vegetables? Do you know why are they so powerful?

The answer is IODINE.

Your body needs it to support a healthy thyroid, high energy level, assure superior metabolism, and hydrate your skin.

So, here comes my first recipe.

Raw Vegetable Soup with Kelp

Ingredients per 1-serving

      • raw organic sauerkraut – 1 hipping tablespoon
      • 2 medium cremini mushroomsEasy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder
      • 2 flowers of cauliflower
      • 5 leaves of dill or parsley
      • ½ medium size tomato
      • few pieces of kelp
      • 1 garlic clove
      • 1 cup (8oz) Kettle & Fire bone broth 

How To

Step 1. Put a little broth in your pot to cover the bottom. Heat the broth, place sliced garlic in and sauté for a few minutes stirring occasionally.

Step 2. Add finely chopped tomato and sauté garlic and tomato for 2-3 minutes. Turn the fire off.

Step 3. Pour in the pot the main portion of heated bone broth. Stir everything.

Step 4. Add all raw ingredients—sauerkraut, mushrooms, cauliflower, chopped dill, and kelp. Cover the soup pot and let it sit for 5 minutes.

Step 5. Stir together once more and pour into a bowl. Dress up with parsley leaves and slices of lemon. Yummy!

Tip

      • If you don’t like floating sea vegetables in your soup, you can remove kelp. Or chop it in small pieces and put them into the pot.

Benefits

First, with bone broth, you will get amino acids, protein, and collagen. Second, you will nourish your body with iodine, iron, riboflavin, vitamin B6, B12, and magnesium.

Besides, cauliflower and mushrooms supply fiber, potassium, vitamin C, and selenium.

2. Flax Raw Veggie Puree Soup – Part 1

Care for small kids or elder person?

My next 10-minute masterpiece among my easy and quick soup recipes is raw vegetable soup. It has all “live” vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Therefore, it’s great for people with digestive problems or a person who is ill.

As an option, use raw garlic on a side and organic flax crackers with homemade hummus. It is if you don’t want to use crackers in the soup. Or, you can do both.

Well, with this recipe you can improvise any way you like.

What you need:

  1. Bone broth (grass-fed and grass-finished). Try Kettle & Fire.
  2. Vitamix
  3. Organic vegetables
  4. Flax Crackers (We prefer Curt’s Classic raw crackers – Organic, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Vegan)

3. Veggie Raw Soup – Part 2

Well, don’t be scared that the ingredients list is long. Just look at the picture above. In fact, the steps of how-to are easy.

How To

Step 1. Put all ingredients as listed (except crackers, olives, and jalapeno) into the Vitamix. Secure the lid. Select VARIABLE mode, put the machine on Speed 1 and switch quickly to Speed 10. Now go to HIGH mode.

Step 2. Run Vitamix for 4 minutes or until steam starts getting out.

Step 3. Change to Speed 2, open the lid and add flax crackers, olives, and jalapeno. Run machine only for 10 seconds.

Step 4. Serve immediately!

Tips

      • If you don’t have flax crackers, use the “healthiest” crackers you can find.
      • Jalapeno assures the “wow” effect but if you don’t care for it, just skip it.
      • You can also use any type of mushroom if you care for it. Cremini is my choice.
      • Even though it is a long list of ingredients, I can “cook” this soup with my eyes closed. It is all about practice.
      • If you have your favorite seasoning, go ahead and be creative!

Do you see how fluffy it is?

Well, thanks to the Vitamix!

Don’t have one?

==> Read my review, “Should I Buy Vitamix?”

Benefits

In addition to amino acids and collagen from the bone broth, you will get a high dosage of vitamin A, as well as vitamin C, calcium, iron, and potassium.

Happy?

Also, flaxseed contains fiber and omega-3 fatty acids which reduce inflammation in the arteries and support good heart health.

So, enjoy!

4. Classic Raw Carrot Soup

Like the carrot soup? Who doesn’t!

And it is next on my list of easy and quick soup recipes.

For me, I love it with the twist. To kick the taste, I use ginger. Also, for a runch, raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds is a fantastic option. But if this soup is for the elderly person, you can pre-soak pumpkin seeds for a few hours.

With this in mind, a few words of wisdom: commercial carrot soups have SUGAR (!) and that is why they are pleasantly sweet. For us, we DO NOT USE SUGAR. Therefore don’t be surprised that your orange creation will be a little different.

Raw Carrot SoupEasy Quick Soup Recipes. Broth and 10-Minute Wonder

Ingredients per 1-serving

  • 1 cup of heated organic beef or chicken bone broth
  • 3 medium carrots cut in few pieces each
  • 1 slice of onion
  • ½ teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 slice of ginger
  • 2 tablespoons almond or coconut milk
  • For garnish: parsley, cilantro or dill, a splash of lemon, a teaspoon of plain yogurt

How To

Step 1. Put all ingredients as listed into the Vitamix. Secure the lid. Next, select VARIABLE mode and put the machine on Speed 1. Then switch quickly to Speed 10. Now go to HIGH mode.

Step 2. Like in a prior recipe, run Vitamix for 4 minutes till soup is smooth.

Step 3. Garnish with parsley, cilantro or dill, and add pumpkin seeds. Also, I love a splash of freshly squeezed lemon for the extra “kick.”

So, don’t procrastinate – get chunks of carrots and get your Vitamix to work.

I hope you love it!

Tip

      •  Remember, the carrot is a very dense vegetable. Add more broth or milk if it is not liquid enough. It’s up to you.

Benefits

It is important to point out that ten minutes of “labor” blending your raw carrot soup will yield superb return, mainly because of carrots and ginger.

Carrots are a godsend transporter of beta carotene—essential antioxidant for healthy skin, good vision and boosting your immune system.

What does ginger do?

It might help with inflammation and improve digestion.

And even if you don’t cook, no problems! Take the first step and learn my quick and easy soup recipes.
