I have very easy way to cook my vegetable soups….cleaned and washed vegetables put in the pot, cut vegetables in a smaller pieces and cook them in a amount water just to cover it. It doesn’t need to cook long, you can try it with a fork, if it is going easy, that’s it. Than, I mix all in the blender machine, put the spices to the taste and voilà that’s all! No heavy oils, no wheat, just vegetables. You can use almost all vegetables, its up to your imagination and taste.
