Ingredients

    3 Medium Carrots - peeled and sliced
    2 Large Celery stalks - sliced
    1 medium Turnip - peeled and diced
    1 cup cabbage - shredded (I use bagged coleslaw)
    1/2 cup chopped leek ( white part only)
    1 16oz package of frozen shelled edamame beans
    1 medium Russet potato - peeled and diced
    2 Tablespoons Butter
    1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
    3 cloves garlic - chopped
    1 cup dry white wine
    5 cups vegetable broth
    5 Tablespoons of Hemp seed
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Wash all the vegetables to remove dirt and pesticides.

Peel and slice or chop all the vegetables in the recipe.

In a soup pot heat the butter over medium low heat until melted.
Add the onion and garlic and saute for 2 minutes; stirring often.

Add all other vegetables except potato and saute for another three minutes.

Add the wine and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes to reduce the wine and cook out the alcohol

Add the vegetable stock, increase heat to high and bring to boil.

Lower heat, add potato and simmer for 20 minutes until all vegetables are soft.

Remove from heat add hemp seed and use food processor or blender to puree in batches.

During the first two weeks post op you will want to add broth and puree until it is thin enough to sip through a straw (but don't use a straw)

After the first two weeks have passed and you have moved on to soft foods the consistency wont matter as much.
