This nutritious soup is easy to prepare and has wonderful flavor and is high in anti-oxidants. Since it’s made without frying any of the ingredients it’s almost fat-free. I actually use the same recipe with a variety of vegetables—sometimes I add or substitute carrots, celery root, or parsnips. Cauliflower is also a nice addition.
You can design your own combination and trust that it will always come out delicious. A food processor, immersion blender, or a powerful stand blender all work well to puree the vegetables. If you like, you can garnish the soup in the bowl with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil or some chopped parsley.
