What You Do:
- Heat a heavy bottomed soup pan with 2 tablespoons Hunter and Gather Avocado Oil.
- Season beef with salt and pepper before adding into the hot pan.
- Sear the beef (cook until a nice golden crust has formed) on each side, roughly 1-2 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan + set aside for later.
- Add the final tablespoon of Hunter and Gather Avocado Oil, the thinly sliced onion, cubed carrots, and chopped garlic to the pan. Sauté for 8-10 minutes.
- Add the stock, tomato paste, parsnips, turnips, dried thyme and bay leaf.
- Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer (slow bubble), and add back in the beef and all of its juices.
- Simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
- Add the kale and cook for 30 additional minutes, uncovered.
- In a separate bowl, mix an arrowroot blend by combining the arrowroot powder (or tapioca starch) with the water. Pour blend into the soup and cook until desired consistency is reached.
- Adjust salt + pepper to taste. Just before serving, squeeze in the lemon juice to make all of the flavours pop. Serve and enjoy!
