Being on the GAPS diet, soup is always at the top of my to do lists. It's either filling the slow cooker with bones and water, or emptying it, or cooking up the soup. Something needs doing every day.
If you don't know, bone broth or meat stock are the basics of the GAPS diet. They are the healing food for the gut. Soup is not an optional extra for us, but we should consume it ideally at every meal.

But there becomes a problem. Although we have the meat stock for breakfast as it is more flavoursome than bone broth, I have to make the bone broth into soup and when you do it so often you begin to get stuck in a rut of the same old flavours. So recently I've been trying to ring the changes. To these you can add whatever spices you like. My family are very plain eaters so I only add herbs. A little ginger goes well with carrots as does parsley. Basil goes with tomatoes.
Here are our top 10 mixtures: All have onion as a base. You should add garlic, but Husband cannot tolerate it, so we don't use it. Season well.
My routine for four adult portions is to make soup with 2 litres stock, which plus the vegetables makes a little over 2 litres. This lasts us for two days.
