This is the most simple to make, classic veg soup featuring the vegetables you may still have growing in your backyard due to this extended summer weather.
Basic Ingredients: onion, carrots, celery, garlic
Add: parsnip, mushroom, zucchini, sweet potatoes, squash or tomatoes (interchange at will!)
There is definitely room to add whatever fresh herbs you’ve got in the yard to add zest and flair.
Basic Directions: saute onions in olive oil and add garlic second. add celery or carrots next 4 - 5 of each. Cook with the lid on the pot for 5 - 10 min, stirring occasionally. Add your “specialty vegetables” and cook with the lid on for another 5 min. Add water just until the vegetables are covered. Add a bit of salt and pepper a bunch of parsley, dill, or whatever you’re growing and let the soup come to a boil. Let the soup simmer for at least 30 min and up to an 1hr. Use your food processor to puree the ingredients, while of course tasting it along the way.
