At the Uliano house, we eat this soup at least once per week. It’s a major crowd pleaser, and it is SO EASY so it’s a Sophie pleaser too. The best part is that if you make a double batch, it freezes perfect for a whole foods, plant-based dinner that’s ready ANY time. If you’re new to a vegan diet, this recipe is a must do – Plus, it’s oil-free! For all of us who are trying to be heart healthy, this recipe rocks.

Pop the onion, celery and carrot in a large saucepan with veggie broth, and “sauté” for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Add the remaining ingredients. Turn down heat low, and simmer for 20 minutes.
Transfer to blender, and blend until smooth.
