Power House Soup Recipe • Just Like Magic Oven | Hearty | Vegan | Cheap |







One of my Favorite Little Restaraunts in Toronto happens to be Magic Oven, located along Toronto's very popular Danforth. They have a great selection of Organic & Vegan options as well as some really good food.

I often go there for something called the Power House Soup, a soup I've simply fallen in love with!

It's a simple soup that ussually has no more than 4 to 5 ingredients.. It hasn't always come fully loaded I guess, but it has always been, simply to die for.

Since I cant get to the Danforth as much as I'd like, and the fact that I have always been good at reversing recipes back to their original ingredients,, 

I had to try out this simple Power House Soup for myself.. 

And ofcourse, it worked out beautifully! I've actually been making it for about a year now.

This Chick Pea & Kale Soup is so Healthy good for you, so easy,  So Hearty, and so cheap! 

It simply is a Must Have, Must Make Often Recipe!

It's definitely turned into one of my favorite soul foods! 

A-and it happens to be super easy to adjust proportion wise.

I litterally just chop up the bunches of Veggie ingredients, throw them in the pot and cook away. It really is one of the easier recipes.

I do quite often, and purposely for that matter, make enough to last me a good 3 days. ~ Soup always has been one of those Leftover Meals that actually can get better the next day, and this is a soup I never want to see the bottom of.




Let's get that soup on..







INGREDIENTS :


• 3-6 Tomatoes
• Kale Bunch
• Chick Peas

• Celery Stalk &/OR Carrots  

**Atleast one of these ingredients will work fine, both are great too.

To 4 to 8 Cups of Water 
( **OR add 4 to 8 Cups of Soup Base instead of Water and Boullions )

• 2 Tablespoon Oil or Butter ~ Or Both

( I like a lot of butter.. )

• 2 Tea Spoon Tumeric ( Optional  )



• Pinch or So Oregano



• Pinch or So Garlic Powder





COOKING INSTRUCTIONS :



➡️ Water, Boullions or Soup Base, Butter, Tumeric ( Optional ) = Combine In 1 Large Sauce Pot

➡️ Chop Veggies = Toss In Pot 

➡️ Bring To Boil for 30 Minutes

➡️ Simmer Down 1 Hour. Add more Water if necessary.. .. Water tends to dissipate due to the effects of Steam.

➡️ Serve



WHO SAID VEGAN FOOD CAN'T BE DIRT CHEAP

& VOILA !,,

YUMMY VEGAN LIVING ON A BUDGET .. OR NOT ON A BUDGET, JUST GOOD FOOD!

~ THAT'S FOOD FOR YOU !!!



💜💜💜




Another  trick to either feeding a lot of people on a budget, or fast notice, and also another good thing about soup is,,

If you have a solid meal for 1, you can make soup for a family.. Just add a loaf of bread and you've got enough to feed everyone.

Should you make soup for the family and end up with a party of 20,, a little of rice goes a loooong way 😘 ~ Simmer down the soup a little, add some Soya Sauce & Now your making a Stir Fry!


And P.S.

ATTENTION KALE SHOPPERS !!!

There is a HUGE Difference in Locally Farmed Kale and your Average Grocery Store Kale, it's definately worth it to find your local Farmers Markets this time of year!
