Fall Potato Dill Vegetable Soup- Vegan


Fall vegetable soup

We loved our flavorful potato dill vegetable soup! 
The weekly local outdoor farmer's markets are thriving and have lots of beautiful seasonal vegetables and herbs for sale! This week I decided to make a fragrant fall vegetable soup with the produce that I bought from the market.



The key player was a beautiful bunch of dill. As soon as I spotted it, I knew I wanted it! However, I really don't have many recipes that call for dill.

I have used dill in potato salad before, so I decided to make a potato based soup. I just went with the flow of what I had purchased. I had potatoes, onions, garlic, zucchini, fresh dill and fresh kale- all from the organic farmers at the market!  The only vegetable I added to the soup from my refrigerator was some carrots.


So Fast and Easy
Seriously, what I calling my early fall potato dill vegetable soup came out delicious. I made it in my Instant pot with a cook time of 5 minutes!! If you don't have an IP just follow directions, and cook longer covered until potatoes are soft ( you might need a little more liquid).

The Freshly Chopped Kale Melted into The Cooked Soup 
The outcome was a nice broth-like soup with lots of chunky vegetables and a mellow flavor. The dill gave it a nice fragrance and taste and the kale just melted into the pot after the soup was cooked. The turmeric brightened it up to a lovely yellow color!

We are talking quick, easy, and healthy here!! A comforting easy plant-based, oil-free, soup that is naturally gluten-free too! Just the way I like it..!!
This soup tastes even better the second day!
