Sunshine Soup! It’s an absolutely simple dinner. My kids grew up with Sunshine Soup, beautiful homemade stock blended with vegetables and crushed tomatoes…and it’s heaven. As a mother it felt great to see my kids eating chicken stock infused with love and blended with vegetables–eating this way really makes a person feel like sunshine, from the inside out. Prior to settling on the name Sunshine Soup, when I couldn’t get my kids to eat, I would name the soup after my kids’ favorite character. One of my kids wouldn’t eat vegetables but loved Cinderella, so I called it Cinderella Soup and told him it was her favorite soup! He loved it! If this works for you, name it whatever will make your kids eat it. Once you learn this soup, you will find yourself making so many variations using chicken stock, a variety of roasted vegetables, and different spice profiles.
- 6 cups chicken broth (or compliant store bought)
- 2 cups compliant tomato puree from a can
- Vegetables left over from making the chicken stock
- 2 tsps salt
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Place everything in a Vitamix and blend until smooth.
