Spring Vegetable Soup


This spring vegetable soup can be made to use up any leftover produce in the fridge; or it is perfect after an over-indulgent trip to the farmer’s market. After the base (stock, onions, leeks and garlic) is made, any vegetables can be used in this soup, making it a light and versatile rainbow of colors. We finished it with a dab of hot chili sauce to give it a nice kick.

Spring Vegetable Soup Ingredients (Serves 6)


  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed ghee
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup chopped leeks, rinsed well
  • 1 bunch asparagus tips

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms (baby beech mushrooms for garnish)
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots, rainbow blend (baby carrots)

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, and cook the onion, leeks and garlic until tender.
  2. Mix in the remaining vegetables, except for the baby mushrooms.
  3. Pour in vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 5-7 minutes.
