Veggie Pork Soup

Nothing warms me up in winter like a delicious soup. And with busy evenings full of cross country skiing, girl scouts, and swimming nothing beats walking in the door and having a hot meal ready to eat. My idea for this soup came from a recipe I saw for sage pork chops. The seasonings go well with the ground pork and vegetables and taste even better the next day. Make extra for packed lunches; my girls ate it all week!

Serves 4

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 1 cup cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cup roasted winter squash or sweet potato, cubed
  • 4-6 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
  • 1 1/2 tsp sage
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

  1. Heat oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Fry ground pork until cooked through.
  3. Add the meat and all remaining ingredients to a slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. Serve hot.
