This is a super simple delicious vegan soup you can make out of bits and pieces of vegetables in your refrigerator.
Half of an onion, roughly chopped
Clove of garlic, smashed
1 medium to large waxy potato, chopped
Half of a bunch of celery, roughly chopped
Stalks of three broccolis, roughly chopped
3 cups of vegetable stock (or chicken stock)
An herb (I used thyme)
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil for garnishing
Celery leaves for garnishing
Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil spray. Add the vegetables, herb, and the stock. Simmer for 20 minutes ( or until everything is cooked through.) Put in blender and purée. Adjust seasoning. Serve with garnish. Can be eaten warm, room temperature, or cold.
Really you can do this with any vegetables you have getting old in the refrigerator but you do need the potato for a creamy texture.
Easy and delicious!
