    nsomniak6's Note:

    This was a recipe I researched a great deal and basically concocted my own from varying ingredients. I basically puree the onion, carrot, and celery and it is used as a base which not only thickens, but adds all of the flavor. I have also used garlic, but it doesn't seem to add much unless you use a lot and I didn't want to overpower this already wonderful soup!

      Excellent! I food processed the first 3 ingredients and it thickened the soup slightly and gave it a lot of flavor. A blender would probably work too. I also substituted beef broth for a bit more heartier flavor. I didn't measure out the olive oil while I was browning the minced ingredients and just used enough to keep it from sticking. It's a very easy recipe and has been a hit in my house.
