I dub theeee homemade soup the ultimate isolation comfort food. This soup is a cross between a soup and a stew. I like my soups nice and thick and hearty and this one turned out perfect.
To be completely honest I didn’t make this recipe with the intentions of blogging it or putting it on my site buttt… It turned out so well I just had to share.
There is a secret recipe to this soup though. Not all will have this ingredient but if you do it really takes the soup to a new level. Adding a little source of fat to any broth type of soup will give it a hint of creaminess and bring out the other flavours as well if salted just right.
What is my secret ingredient you ask?
This fourth and heart Himalayan pink salt grass fed ghee butter. Sooo delicious!
If you don’t have this product you can replace with any other margarine or butter.
This is a great and easy slow cooker meal that is super comforting for the whole family to enjoy!
