Blended low fat vegetable soup

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Diced onion
2 packs Instant chicken broth & seasoning mix.
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1½ cup Zucchini, thinly sliced
½ cup Carrots, thinly sliced
½ cup Tomato, chopped, seeded
1 teaspoon Fresh parsley, chopped
¼ teaspoon Basil leaves
⅛ teaspoon Pepper

Combine onion, garlic and broth mix in a pot. Cook and stir occasionally until the onion turns translucent. Then add the rest of the ingredients, with stirring. Cover and cook on low heat, with occasional stirring for roughly 10 minutes. Add 2 cups of water and bring it to a boil.

Then reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook 'til the veggies are soft, maybe 20 minutes. Then with a hand blender blend for a little bit right in the pot to thicken the soup, being sure to leave a lot of chunks of vegetables. The amount you blend depends on you own tastes.

Blend a few seconds, stir, and try it.

Shirley makes triple batches of this, because we love it, and because it gets better and better when reheated as left-overs. You might try more pepper, it is very good as a peppery soup.
