Family Soup

Hello it's been a loooong time!
My family of two has multiplied and we are now 4. One 2 year old daughter and another almost 3 month old daughter. They are amazing! The last few days we have had I believe that it is my 2 year old, Lyra's first cold ever. I think she has been so healthy because we eat so well and feed her so well. She eats pretty much everything we eat and most often rather enjoys it! But having a cold makes mama want soup, so we have had two impromptu soups that turned out very well indeed. The first soup I made shall be dubbed......

Get Well Soon Soup.

2 carrots
2 stalks celery
1/2 large celeriac root
1 red onion
2 leaves kale
1 large clove garlic (minced)
1- 1.5 inch piece ginger ( minced)
1/2 jalapeno pepper de-seeded (or the whole thing if you like spice)
1 can diced tomatoes
1 tsp dried oregano
salt and pepper

Chop all veggies. Heat olive oil in pan, medium heat. Saute onions, garlic, jalapeno and ginger in pan till nicely aromatic. Add the rest of the veggies, oregano, salt, pepper, and the can of tomatoes. Add enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Cook until the veggies are soft and puree in a blender. Not the prettiest color, but super tasty and nutritious! We grated some tasty cheese on top and viola! Lyra loved it and so did we.
Happy December :)

I'll share that second soup later.
