Vegetable Soup

I love my vegetables. To me, a steaming hot bowl of vegetable soup is a great pick-me-up. Excellent for detoxing too especially after a drunken *coughs* late night out. I’d be sipping soup the whole day to rehydrate. The knowledge that you’re consuming something so healthy just makes you feel good.

This soup is also something I turn to whenever I feel that all the cakes and cookies are getting to my waistline. I never stay away from them very long though. =P

1 onion
1 trimmed leek
4 tomatoes
2 carrots
4 sticks celery

Slice onion, celery, and leek thinly, cut carrots into small cubes, peel and mush up the tomatoes with your hands. Toss everything into a pot and fill with just enough water to cover the vegetables. Cover and simmer at a low heat for a few hours. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. The taste of nothing but vegetables is not for everyone, but I adore it. If healthy was a taste, this would be it!

*gasp!* Something healthy :-O

While not as appealing as a cheese cloud, I suppose it's necessary to munch something healthy every so often ;)
