famous vegetable soup for the soul









I enjoyed watching the preparation of all the gorgeous vegetables that went into this soup (sorry ladies, I had a camera in my hand) and couldn't wait to try it.  Indeed I focused on the 10 cups of veggies in the soup and not the butter or cream. : )  Delicious!  I thought a nice bowl of soup was an excellent addition to the Thanksgiving feast.

1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced tomatoes
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced green beans
1 cup broccoli, cut
1 cup leeks,sliced
1 cup diced zucchini
1 cup diced red pepper
2 cups diced potatoes
3 cloves garlic
6 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions in butter.  Add all veggies and reduce heat to low for 25 minutes or until all veggies are soft.  Add chicken stock and boil on medium for 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes.  Blend all of the above then return to pot and add cream.  Enjoy!
