Spinach & Vegetable Soup

 This is surprisingly delish!  You will want to make more after you try it.  I use my Vitamix to blend up the veggies to a puree, but if  you have a blender, adjust your recipe according to that particular kitchen appliance.

013

2 cups chicken broth

1 1/2 cups water

2 garlic cloves, peeled

1 tsp. diced onion

1/2 cup steamed chopped carrots

4 spears of asparagus, steamed

3/4 cup chopped broccoli, steamed

1 cup diced cooked potatoes

2 cups of spinach, washed

1/2 cup steamed chopped yellow squash

1/2 cup steamed chopped zucchini

1/4 tsp. dried basil

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. lemon juice

1 (15 oz.) can drained chickpeas

  1. Place all ingredients, except the chickpeas, into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Select variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 6-7 min. or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid.
  5. Reduce the speed to Variable 2 and remove the lid plug.
  6. Add the chickpeas and blend for 5-10 sec.

Voila!
