This is a simple, delicious, pureed soup. You can reduce prep time by using frozen carrots and onions. This was adapted from a recipe out of Jane Brody's "Good Food Book." I made some changes so it was easier to make and more in keeping with a Nutritarian eating style.....For each can of low sodium broth, I substitute 2 cups water, 1 tablespoon VegiZest (from drfuhrman.com) and 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional).
