This recipe was given to me by my best friend. It is really yummie and good for you too! So simple to make!


  1. Chop all the vegetables, add a drop of olive oil to the pot and add in the diced onion, add the mushrooms in next.
  2. Let these sautee for a few moments. (In the meantime boil the kettle).
  3. Then add in all the vegetables, use enough hot water so that its covering the vegetables. Then add canned tomoatoes, simmer all vegetable until soft.
  4. Dissolve the vegetable stock cube in a little boiling water in a glass jug and add to the pot.
  5. When the veggies are soft, allow to cool.
  6. Depending on how you like your soup, you can blend the entire pot of veg once cooled OR you can take about 1/3 of the vegetable away blend 2/3 then add back the more solid 1/3. All depending on your taste.
  7. Add a little salt and pepper if required.
  8. Serve with Bread.

This was delicious! I can't believe that this recipe has been posted for over four years and no one else has said so.

The only alterations that I made to the recipe as posted were:
%u2022 I used the whole squash
%u2022 Instead of a vegetable stock cube I used a couple tablespoons of vegetable soup mix
%u2022 I seasoned with black pepper, cayenne pepper, and Tony Chachere%u2019s Creole Seasoning

Since half of the ingredients didn't have amounts listed, I took it upon myself to not only improvise but also to cut the amounts down to serve 2 of us! I used 4 medium carrots, 1 large yam, a tablespoon of minced lemon basil, a tablespoon of onion powder, 3 deveined celery stocks & a 14.5 oz can of low-sodium diced tomatoes! I left out the mushrooms & the butternut squash! Also the vegetable stock cub wasn't listed in the ingredients, but I did use it! The final soup turned out to be pretty good, but it wasn't quite what was intended, I'm sure! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick A Chef]
