A wonderful tasty soup

I got my first box from the CSA I joined this week and made this wonderful soup. Andy liked it so much he had seconds and then asked for it as a snack!

Kathi’s July Vegetable Soup

2 tablespoons gfcf margarine (or butter if you are not gfcf)
½ cup minced onions
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 baby bok choy, thinly sliced
4 cups chicken stock (use vegetable stock if you are vegetarian)
2 cups water
1 large potato, peeled and diced
1 carrot, peeled and grated
2 kohlrabies
1 head broccoli
½ teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
Fresh herbs from the garden – I used parsley, cilantro, oregano and basil – I didn’t measure, just a small amount of each
Salt and pepper
2 ounces bean threads, softened (if you aren’t gfcf you could use vermicelli)

Sautee onions and garlic in margarine until soft

Add the rest of the ingredients except the bean threads. Bring to boil and then turn down and simmer for 25 minutes.

Add softened bean threads and cook another 10 minutes.

Kathi - It looks like a wonderfully hearty soup. I enjoy thick and flavorful soups in the wintertime.

My children's eye doctor has recently published a book that you might be interested in reading. It's titled: "Seeing Through New Eyes: Changing the Lives of Autistic Children, Asperger Syndrome and Other Developmental Disabilities Through Vision Therapy" by Dr. Melvin Kaplan. It's $13.57 at Maybe this is something that can be helpful to you.

Thanks Sheltie Girl. There has been talk lately on my autism board about vision therapy - I'll check out the book.
