Vegan Vegetable Masala Soup

IMG_13762 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 onion; diced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 celery stalk; diced
1 carrot; diced
1″ piece fresh ginger; minced
2 cloves garlic; crushed
1 Tablespoon garam masala
2 cups crushed tomatoes (in season use fresh tomatoes; diced)
2 cups water

Preheat a heavy bottomed soup pot over medium-low heat. Add coconut oil, onion and sea salt. Cover and saute 5 minutes. Add celery and carrots, stir, cover and saute an additional 5 minutes. Add ginger, garlic and garam masala, stir, cover and saute another 5 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes and simmer for 30 minutes. Add water, increase heat to boil, reduce heat and simmer an additional 30 minutes.

While the soup is cooking/simmering prepare the rest of the meal. I served vegan baked potatoes and salad but a sandwich would be wonderful too.
