Minka Kelly’s Summer Veggie Soup Is the Healthy Dinner You’ve Been Looking For

If you have a large pot and a blender, you’re just steps away from being able to make Minka Kelly‘s latest culinary creation.

The culinary school alum, who often posts her recipes on Instagram, made creating homemade soup from scratch look like a breeze, sharing her step-by-step process on Sunday. Although she didn’t share exact measurements, the recipe looks so simple that eye-balling the portions looks doable.

Kelly says to first slice up a bunch of leeks, zucchini, and garlic. Eating your greens feels easy when they look this gorgeous on the cutting board.

“Leels, zucchini & garlic, oh my,” the 36-year-old captioned her photo.

Then she instructs to mix all the veggies together in a large pot with what looks like red pepper flakes and a little bit of olive oil.

“Simmer for 10 ,” Kelly says with a photo of the lid on the pot.

She then takes the veggie mixture and puts it into a blender (she uses a Vitamix) and blends it with two cups of water.

The result is a yummy, pureed soup with a zucchini garnish. Voilà!

See Bhutan’s Dragon Prince — the World’s Most Handsome Royal Baby — in Sweet New Photo with Mom!

The Dragon Prince is growing up!

Bhutan’s 1-year-old prince and heir to the throne, Prince Gyalsey Jigme Namgyel — also known as the Dragon Prince — is cuter than ever in a new photo released by Bhutan’s royal family. 

In the photo, the little prince sits in a field of flowers with his mom, Queen Jetsun, who is as stunning as ever in a purple ensemble. The mother-son duo are shown holding hands and smiling.

The image was released as part of the country’s June Calendar, and coincides with the Queen’s birthday on June 4. June also marks the anniversary of the King’s Coronation Day, on June 2.

“On the auspicious occasion of Her Majesty The Gyaltsuen’s birthday, (June 4), we join the entire country in offering our wishes and love to Her Majesty The Queen,” a post on her official Facebook page read. “Her Majesty’s eternal grace and service to the nation alongside His Majesty The King inspires and uplifts us everyday.”

The King and Queen of Bhutan have been nicknamed the “Will and Kate of the Himalayas,” and gave birth to their first child, Gyalsey, a few months before Prince William and Princess Kate paid them a visit in Bhutan last year.

Mowry-Housley – who is also mom to 4½-year-old Aden John Tanner with husband Adam Housley – said she started with Ariah’s favorite color, pink, and then brought in “lots of light and soft textures.”

Ariah can cozy up with her mom and dad on a faux fur rug and stool, which The Real host says are both favorites of the toddler’s: “She absolutely loves the plushness of these two pieces, and goes right to them every time she walks in her room.”

Though Ariah is still sleeping in a crib, Mowry-Housley admits she hopes the space is functional and can easily grow with her daughter. “The room had to be designed around the idea that it would need to be updated from a nursery to a big kid room,” she explains.

The mom of two says her favorite aspect of the space is the floral-print wallpaper, which she sees as a focal point “that is bold, but not too busy.”

“As Ariah gets older and her bedroom needs change, we plan on keeping the same look and feel to the room, and just updating a few things,” writes the star. “Even the decorative crib pillows we selected are functional accents that can easily be placed on her big girl bed once we are ready for it.”

Expresses Mowry-Housley of the finished space, “I can’t wait to see how she will continue to use it and make it her own as she grows up!”
