Quick Vegetable Soup from Williams Sonoma

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
