In winter I cook many vegetable soups. They´re healthy, not expensive, a perfect lunch for me and last for three days in the fridge.
One vegetable soup I like is "Sopa Juliana" which you can find in most regions of Portugal.
Most times, I buy small packets with fresh finelly chopped vegetables for soup. The mixture of vegetables is ready, has no chemical additions, comes in small portions and we can find different versions:
The vegetable soup mixture in the picture above consists of:
~ Cabbage - We call this one "Coraçao de Boi"
~ Dark Green Portuguese Cabbage which is called "Couve Portuguesa"
When I use soup veg packets, I always do a base with just potatoes, onions, olive oil, water and salt:
After cooking well (around 20 minutes) I blend and then add the vegetable mix, previously well washed.
In Portuguese supermarkets of my region I can find, at least, six different vegetable mix for soups. With this packets and other vegetables available I can diversify my soup menu.
See you soon.
