"This smooth and flavorful vegetable soup is a family recipe. It can be served as an elegant first course, but we also find it makes great diet fare when eaten with a loaf of French bread."

  1. Cook onion and garlic in butter over medium high heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, water, carrots, leeks, green onions, habanero peppers, spinach, and watercress. Bring to a low boil, and cook for 30 minutes, or until carrots are soft. Remove from heat, and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  2. Puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to the pot, and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes before serving. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil or vinegar, or both, if desired.

I thought this soup looked disgusting, tasted very bitter, and really wasnt worth the time i spent cooking and liquidising it all.

This was very tasty. I think next time I will omit the pepper as it was a bit too hot for my husband. Otherwise, it was perfect!

Nothing wrong with this, but nothing outstanding either. Better as part of the meal -- would probably disappoint as the whole meal itself.

A wonderful soup for my low acid diet.

Very tasty...but next time will eliminate the pepper flakes (had no habanero peppers) and added about 1 2/3 cups of mashed potatoes to make the puree a little more thick...
