You can make this soup with any combination of fresh vegetables on hand. Just be sure to include some potatoes or carrots. Leave the vegetables chunky for a robust soup, or puree half of the vegetables for extra body.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil or 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped
- 1 baking potato, coarsely chopped
- 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
- 1 cup broccoli, coarsely chopped
- 3 cups vegetable stock
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 bay leaf
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion. Saute until it begins to soften, 3-5 minutes. Add all the vegetables, the stock, and herbs. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 15-20 minutes.
- Discard the bay leaf. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and serve.
This is very good soup. I used the oil option to fry up half a large Spanish onion. The potato was scrubbed and left unpeeled. I used an immersion blender to partially puree the soup making the broth a bit thicker. More veggies could easily be added to make a hardier soup. Made for Spring09PAC.
This is so yummy, fast, and easy. The only change was I used 16 once bag of frozen broccoli instead of just one cup. What a great post. Thanks.
I had a bit of broccoli I had to use and this was so easy to whip up! Very tasty and made as posted using sea salt and fresh ground pepper for seasoning. A 5-star keeper to make and enjoy often! Thanks for posting Linda. Made for I Recommend Tag.
