Carrots, Zucchini and Potatoes Soup
I cannot think about a better dish than a soup to warm up my body and soul after a day of skiing!
I actually crave a good soup during the whole season. It's easy, it can be stored for days, you use whatever is in the fridge and it always turns out delicious.
Unfortunately, the low-FODMAP diet removed most of the veggies that I love to use. Even so, I kept trying to find a perfect combination of ingredients to enjoy my favorite heartwarming dish.
I had my usual zucchini and carrots (it's a never-ending love story!), potatoes, and leftover tomato sauce from the pizza I made the night before. Hence, it sounded like nothing was missing.
I even added some pastina and frozen peas for texture, but if gluten or peas are triggering, you can skip this step and enjoy the soup by itself.
When I'm home I make my soup in an iron cast pot, because it is suggested for slow cooking recipes as it gently stews at low heat and has the ability to keep all the humidity and flavors inside.
