Creamy Vegetable Cumin Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Nasseh

This soup is based on a traditional Middle Eastern soup. It's unbelievably healthy and easy to make with only a few ingredients. The finished soup has a wonderful creamy texture, considering there is no cream or cheese in it.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this soup! When making this soup, I saute'd the carrots, potatoes, and onions for 7 minutes, and only added the garlic (1 teaspoon of jarred minced garlic), the last minute of saute'ing/cooking time. For the broth/liquid, I used 4 cups of organic broth (as that's all the broth I had), plus I added 2 cups of water, and I also added 1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon granules. I brought the broth to a boil, then reduced the heat to a simmer, and cooked the vegetables for 30 minutes. I did add 1 teaspoon of salt, and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground white pepper. I loved the consistency of this soup, it was like a bisque. I found this soup yields: 10 cups. This was the 2nd time I made this soup, and I look forward to making it again. Thank you Nasseh for sharing this recipe, as this soup was quite delish!!
