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.
Heat the olive oil in large pot then saute the garlic, carrots, potatoes, and onion for 5 minutes, to heighten flavors. Add broth (or water plus bouillon), cover & cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender, around 20 minutes.
Pour the soup into a blender & puree until smooth. You may need to do half at a time.
Add cumin, salt, & pepper then adjust seasonings to taste. If soup is too thick, additional water may be added.
