Ingredients

2 T
butter
2  
onions (medium sized, chopped)
1 clv
garlic (minced)
5 c

3 c

1 t

salt and pepper
   
flaked almonds (to garnish)

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan and sauté onions and garlic until cooked.
  2. Add the broth, vegetables, Italian spice and bay leaf. Bring to a quick boil, then lower temperature and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the bay leaf and blend the soup until smooth.

Notes

With no pepper or Italian seasoning, and easy on the salt, such a soup would be also suitable for a child in the mixed tastes stage. No flaked almonds either.
