Simple Cream of Vegetable Soup
There are times that I want to make a big fuss over dinner. I'll spend hours in the kitchen getting things just right for a special occasion. Most of the time, I am too busy and too tired to do that. I want some food that is forgiving. By forgiving, I mean something that I can cobble together quickly and know that it will taste good. I also want something that will go with different types of sandwiches. This soup is perfect for making a sandwich into a meal.
This soup comes together in less than half an hour. While the veggies are cooking, I can throw some sandwiches together. Below the recipe, I have suggestions for quick and easy sandwiches to eat with this, including links to the recipes in the Related Links.
Simple Cream of Vegetable Soup
1 cup roughly chopped onions
1 ½ cups roughly chopped celery
2 cups roughly chopped peeled carrots
3 cups water
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1/8-1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
¼ teaspoon seasoned salt
¼ teaspoon tarragon
¼ teaspoon white pepper
¼ teaspoon pear infused balsamic vinegar
1 can chicken noodle soup
4-6 ice cubes (depending on how thick you want your soup)
¼ cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon butter (optional)
water to thin the soup, if needed
In a large saucepan, add the vegetables to the 3 cups of water. Cook, uncovered, on medium-high for 25 minutes. Turn the heat off and add 4 ice cubes to the veggies to cool them a bit. If you have a few extra minutes, you can let the veggies cool for up to 30 minutes.
Pour the veggies and cooking liquid into a blender bowl. I use a Vitamix. Be very cautious when blending hot liquids. Add the seasonings, chicken noodle soup, water, evaporated milk, and butter, if desired. Process the veggies and other ingredients until the soup is smooth. Serve immediately, or refrigerate and reheat.
