Fresh Vegetable Soup

Forget the all-you-can-eat soup bars whose soups often fall on the side of being bland or oversalted, but never quite right. Make your own soup at home, and your taste buds (and wallet) will thank you. There are so many variations on this recipe. Add or leave out vegetables to suit your taste. If you like thick soups, consider puréeing this recipe in the pot with an immersion blender.
