Great Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Paul Elliott

I came up with this because my wife loves everything creamy, but has been told to cut down on the dairy. The potatoes break down and give a cream soup feel and taste. It's very simple, hearty and healthy. It's also easy to come up with variations. A food processor makes for easy preparation

Yum! A good filling soup for winter days and very easy to make. The only change that I made was to use home-made (salt free) vegetable stock instead of just the plain water. .. and since it was listed as a "Vegetable" soup I also of course left out the beef bone .. also so that my vegetarian MiL could join us. Please see my Rating system, 4 lovely stars for a tasty veggie soup that we had for dinner and which I had twice for lunch. Thanks!
