My Vegetable Soup

in food •  2 years ago

Hi Steemians! Today I’m going to show you how to prepare a vegetable soup. My mother Mariska was born on 2 August, 1939 (you may also want to read a poem I wrote today in her honor). She taught me this recipe and now I will be sharing it with you.

It’s kind of cold this winter in Buenos Aires (if you live in the northern hemisphere you are enjoying summer right now), so I am preparing enough soup for a whole week.

You will need:


1 Celery1 Bouquet of Parsley
1 Big Onion½ Bell Pepper (green)
2 Corn2 Carrots
¼ Cabutia Pumpkin (Calabaza Cabutia)2 Vegetable Bouillon Cubes
1 Teaspoon ground red pepper2 Garlic cloves
Olive OilBoiled Water


Cut all the vegetables in small cubes (Brunoise type cut). Put some olive oil in a large saucepan and sauté the onions first, the bell pepper, garlic, celery and parsley. Then add the carrots, cabutia pumpkin and corn. Parboil it for 5 minutes.

Can you hear Tina, my dog, burping while I'm preparing the soup? LOL
Add 2 bouillon cubes and start adding some boiled water, about 5 liters (approx. 1 ½ gallon). Then add the ground red pepper and leave it cooking for about 40 minutes. Serve with creamy cheese!

Bon Appétit my dear Steemians!
