Strength Soup for cold winter days

I do not have a scientific proof but I am sure this soup has immune strengthening properties. It is the perfect soup blend for cold winter days like the ones we have in Chicago.


  • 8 cups of beef broth
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 1 beet
  • 1 potato
  • 1/2 celery root (head)
  • 1 cup shredded green cabbage
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1/2 bunch italian parsley
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • Salt to taste


  1. Peel the potato, beet, celery root.
  2. Grate the beet. Put cooking oil in heated pan and saute the beet with minced garlic.
  3. In a pot, pour the beef broth. Add diced potatoes, diced celery root and shredded cabbage. Add salt to taste. Wait until the broth is boiled.
  4. Add the sauteed beets and bunch of parsley (no need to chop) into the pot let it boil again.
  5. Take the parsley out when the broth has boiled.
  6. The soup is ready to serve.

I change this recipe with different veggies such as carrots, peas and zucchini. Just a friendly reminder that celery root has a strong, dominant flavor, so keep the ratio of the celery smaller than the rest of the veggies. I blend the vegetables before serving. Definitely a tasty soup recipe for babies and adults alike.
