  • Notes
  • If you like thick soups, consider pureeing this recipe in the pot with an immersion blender.There are so many variations on this recipe. Add or leave out vegetables to suit your taste.Save time by using frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones (though the texture of the soup might change a bit). You can also buy small amounts of pre-cut vegetables from your supermarket’s salad bar.
