"A wonderful thick smooth soup, I made it as written except for cooking my onion and 3 cloves garlic in approx a teaspoon of olive olive oil first, then adding chicken stock/broth in place of veg broth..." See more. I used a food processor to chop up my veggies, so it was super easy!! While my first load of veggies and stock was cooking, processed the zucchini and broccoli and placed in a bowl with the dried basil and pepper, then processed the spinach and placed in second bowl. I used a spoonula for stirring soup as well as scraping my processor bowl. Seasoning was perfect, remember to use ripe veggies for full flavor!! This is a keeper, I'll be making more tomorrow! :) "

"I thought this recipe was wonderful! I have recently started a path towards a vegetarian lifestyle and my husband is supportive but not that jazzed up about it. After I made this soup he said if eat..." See moreing veggie was like this he was more than willing to try more recipes. I added a small amout of sour cream to each bowl before serving it gave it a creamer texture though it was great all on its own. I also doubled the split peas like suggested."
