Original Recipe By:  Miriam Borys

Servings: 4

1 T  coconut oil
2 T olive oil
½ yellow onion – diced
4 fillets of anchovies
½ small zucchini – diced
½ red pepper
3 stalks celery
1 small yam – peeled and diced
1 ½ cups new potatoes – cut in ¼’s
1 tsp. bouillon of choice
8 c  chicken stock *  see video ‘how to make stock at home’
½ cup brown rice (optional but delicious)
1 c fresh cilantro – add to soup pot just before service


Heat a large sauce pan.  Add oils & continue to heat to a medium.
Add diced onion, anchovies, celery, red pepper, zucchini, yam and sauté until onions are transparent.
Add bouillon, chicken stock, potatoes, brown rice and herbs of choice.
Cover and bring up to the boil.
Uncovered, and reduce the heat to low so that the soup simmers for approximately 25 minutes.
Just before service, add 1 cup of chopped fresh cilantro (optional but delicious).
Serve hot with crackers or fresh bread or with nothing at all because this soup is delicious on its own
