This is an all-purpose soup that can be varied in infinite ways. This recipe makes approximately 8-12 cups. We don't eat it plain, but make it into "egg things" http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/recipes/gaps-egg-things, which is essentially a solidified liquid diet for a severely picky GAPS patient.
1/4 cup fat (chicken fat, lard, ghee, coconut oil, or a mixture)
2 onions (and 2 stalks celery, if desired)
6 large garlic cloves
2 lbs. ground beef or chicken parts (no bones)
~2-3 quarts chopped veggies: cabbage, zucchini, etc.
Lots of salt and pepper
herbs (we like lots of oregano)
1 quart rich broth http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/recipes/information-about-making-broth
Saute onion (and celery) gently in fat, till translucent; add garlic cloves and saute for a few more minutes. Brown the beef, if using. Add the chicken, if using, and vegetables, and pour in the broth.
Bring to a boil and simmer till everything is very well done. Add salt to taste (slightly saltier than you'd like, if you're making "egg things" http://www.lifeisapalindrome.com/recipes/gaps-egg-things), and lots of herbs.
Blend in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender, until completely smooth.
