Last but not least

The last soup for this soup month is maybe my favorite - a creative vegetable soup. It's always a bit different, sometimes a pleasant surprise, sometimes an opportunity to learn from your errors... Basically, you can use almost what ever vegetables you have in the fridge. Potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, peas and onion for example. Anything that can be boiled and liquidized. It's usually nice to have at least couple of potatoes, this will make the soup a bit thicker. Clean, peel and chop the vegetables, fry in oil gently for few minutes, then add vegetable stock enough to cover the veggies, and simmer until the vegetables are done. Then liquidize, add cream and reheat gently. Season with salt and black or white pepper to taste.

The cream you can of course leave out, or substitute it with cream cheese, sour cream or milk. You can add some toasted nuts, seeds, croutons, fresh herbs, crumbled feta, blue cheese or goat's cheese on top to make it a bit more interesting.

So simple, cheap and good! Go experiment! Now!
