Don’t let the cute pink color fool you: this soup is not only beautiful and perfect for Valentine’s Day; it is also a real power house when it comes to nutrition with loads of vitamin C, fibers, and essential minerals.
In a large saucepan, water sauté the chopped onion and garlic until translucent.
Add the washed, peeled and chopped vegetables, then cover with water and add the bouillon cube if using. Bring to a boil then lower to a simmer for about 30 minutes.
Remove the pot from the heat. Add the spices, the Herbes de Provence and then using an immersion blender, process until you reach your desired creamy consistency. Season to taste and let simmer for 5 more minutes.
Serve warm with added toppings such as chia seeds, sesame seeds, freshly cracked black pepper, and a generous drizzle of coconut/soy cream or lemon juice on top.
And now, enjoy!
