Creamy Vegetable Soup

Everyone loves this super healthy soup, perfect for an easy supper. This creamy vegetable soup is the perfect way to warm yourself up on a cold winter day. It can be put together in about 40 minutes, yet would be a great first course for a dinner party. It can be also done in advance and reheated once ready to serve.

What you'll need

One of the best thing about this soup is that you can use any veggies you have in the fridge. We used ZUCCHINI, CARROTS, PUMPKIN, LEEK, BROCCOLI and FRESH PARSLEY, all cut into smaller pieces or slices. But you can also use any other vegetable, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, califlower, celery leaves or root, parsley root, peppers... Instead of leek use yellow onion, also chopped...

4 easy steps for making this creamy soup:

  1. PREPARING THE VEGGIES: Rinse in the water and peel veggies that's need peeling (such as carrots or potatoes). Also remove the green leaves from the leek, cut it into half lengthwise and wash layers from inside (sometimes dirt can hide here). For chopping veggies, prepare large cutting board and knife. One by one, cut the veggies into smaller pieces (about 1cm), placing into a bowl once cut.

  2. COOKING VEGGIES IN A PAN: First cook leek and parsley for a few minutes, then add the rest of vegetables and cook for 9-10 minutes, stirring continuously. The vegetables will soften slightly.

  3. COOKING: Add water and cook for about 20-25 minutes.

  4. BLENDING THE VEGGIES: Blend the veggies using stick blender until creamy, season with salt and pepper and add more water if necessary.
