DH and I are sick with a summer cold, so this soup was perfect. For more vitamins and minerals, though, I sauteed onions, LOTS of garlic, celery, carrots, then added a garlic bouillon cube, and 3 or 4 chicken bouillon cubes, 3 large peeled, chopped potatoes, and 3 chopped heads of fresh broccoli. Seasoned with a touch of salt, and simmered til veggies were soft. Shut off heat to cool. Then pureed in blender and reheated. Added salt and pepper to taste, with some ground red pepper. Perfecto! In individual bowls, I also added some shredded mexican blend cheese (because that's what I had, but cheddar would have probably been better) to the kids' bowls. Everyone inhaled it and went back for seconds and thirds - even my pickiest. I've always added milk to mine, but this definitely didn't need it.- thank goodness, because we are almost out of milk and I am too sick to go to the store for it. Vitamin packed and healthy, it was delish! Thanks! Four stars because I added all the other vegs for flavor and health - but I assume its great without.
