Happy Peasant Soup
4-6 Easy
PREVIOUS: Reuben Soup NEXT: Peasant Stew

Ingredients (6)

  • 2 Whole Heads of Organic Garlic
  • 6 Large red potatoes srubbed and sliced
  • 2 Large red Onions chopped and caramelized
  • 7 cups veggie stock
  • Celtic sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • chopped Flat leaf parsley for garnishing

Hearty, nourishing, delicious, nutritious, and dead easy to make. This red potato, onion and garlic broth, which I affectionately refer to, as my “Happy Peasant Soup” (do you like the smiley face I made in my photo?) is quite simply phenomenal. This phytochemical rich garlic broth will fight off any viral vampires you have to fight, whether it be a simple cold, flu, minor infection, Candida, immune disorder, or other nasty. This soup can’t hurt and can only help – and will keep our snouts happy like every self- respecting peasant before us! It is delicious! Vampires beware!


  1. 1Preheat oven to 200C/400F
  2. 2Place the whole unpeeled garlic bulbs in a small tray and bake for about 30 minutes.
  3. 3Parcook the potatoes in boiling water for about 10 minutes.
  4. 4Stir fry the onions until caramelized.
  5. 5Bring the veggie stock to the boil, and simmer for about 5 minutes, and then add the drained potatoes.
  6. 6Squeeze the roasted garlic pulp into the soup, season to taste, and stir through.
  7. 7Simmer for about 15 minutes until potatoes are cooked through, and the flavors infuse.
  8. 8Pulse very briefly with a hand blender so still relatively chunky and rustic
  9. 9Garnish with parsley and serve. YUM!
