Velvety vegetable soups are an incredible asset to one’s recipe repertoire and they are absolutely easy to create. Some people like thin soup, broth like soups and others like a thick, luxurious soup with a hearty mouth feel ~ I actually like both!  I know that for ‘dieting’ purposes a thin, broth like soup are considered to be best and that a thick, luxurious soup is considered taboo. I set out to prove to myself that a person could actually have both a healthy luxurious soup with a great sense of satisfaction in a very healthy way and it would be amazing.
