Blended Vegetable Soup

Blended Vegetable Soup is a recipe from a friend of mine. She originally made it with 5 ingredients; onions, tomatoes, red peppers, zucchini and broth. It was delicious. I have added more vegetables here, but you can add as many or as little as you like or have on hand. It does need the basil, sugarsalt, pepper, and chili pepper seasonings, but varying the vegetables is fine.

Blended Vegetable Soup

I dislike chopping vegetables, so I puree them mixed with broth or tomatoes. I cook them and then blend them again for a smoother texture. Many blended soups are made with a cream base, which makes them more caloric. This one is double blended to get that same creamy texture!

Healthy recipes are about making simple changes without altering the taste. It’s a simple healthy soup recipe to make, and pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches or rustic bread. I always add grated white cheddar cheese to the top too!
