Creamy Veggie Everyday Soup

This soup is extremely easy to make and it can be 100% vegan or not depending on your personal preferences. You can also play around with ingredients as much as you want. The basic recipe goes like this:

  1. Dice potatoes, celery, carrots and onions into similar-sized pieces and put them in a pot.
  2. Add stock or plain water and bring to a boil.
  3. Season with salt and add herbs, like bay leaf and a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme. Simmer until veggies are soft.
  4. Remove the herbs and blend the soup with an immersive blender until smooth. You can add a splash of cream or coconut milk for extra creaminess.

Note that this soup should be served immediately.
