This is a very easy and tasty soup. I didn't have any veggie broth on hand and subbed chicken broth. I also used a large Yukon Gold potato and a diced sweet onion in the mix. After whirling with my wand blender, I found that the soup did not need additional salt and only a little fresh ground pepper. The multiple flavors were each distinct, yet blended well. I loved the little bite of freshness from the nutmeg. Very nice soup.
