Oh So Delicious Homemade Vegetable Soup Recipe

This is rather a basic soup but do not let that fool you into thinking it might be bland because it is not. Sometimes all you need to make a wonderfully flavored soup is vegetables, garlic, and seasonings. The vegetables give a wholesome and fresh flavor to the soup and they have plenty of flavor of their own. Adding too much seasoning would simply overpower the vegetable flavor so keep it fresh and tasty and rest assured that this healthy soup is just as delicious as it is healthy.

This potato and vegetable soup is very satisfying and goes beautifully with warm bread and butter on the side or some hot and crusty bread for dunking. You can use fresh parsley instead of the fresh mint to garnish it or even cilantro. Since you are only using vegetables and garlic to flavor the soup, as well as little salt and pepper, you can use any kind of fresh herb garnish you like and know that it will look and taste good.

The chunky vegetables make this soup look especially appetizing but if you prefer a non-chunky soup, you can blend it for thirty seconds using a hand blender and serve it with a swirl of sour cream on the top as well as the fresh mint sprigs. You can get creative with this recipe. You can substitute any vegetables you want, as long as you give them adequate cooking time, so everything is cooked well and soft.
