This recipe has become our Halloween staple for the last 5 years. It is so simple and delicious, even my picky kids love it. I do not use any butter, and we don't add any cream. It doesn't need the added fat for such a healthy recipe, and other than making it slightly creamier, it doesn't do anything for flavor. I add about 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and probably a teaspoon of salt. I decrease this amount if not using low-sodium broth. I have made it with chicken broth as well, but much prefer the veggie broth. I always use an immersion blender right in the pot after the veggies are tender. I learned quickly that it is not a good idea to put hot soup into a standard blender or food processor. The immersion blender gives it the perfect consistency. It is not a spicy soup, the flavoring is simple, but it is perfect for a cold autumn evening. We serve out of bread bowls and with hot wassail.
