Vegetable Basil Soup

Delicious and hearty, this soup is filled with crunchy vegetables and savory broth. Be generous with the fresh basil and serve with crusty bread, a big salad, and a little white wine...




In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Sauté the onions, celery, and carrots for about 10 minutes until the vegetables are just getting soft.

Add the basil, potatoes, tomatoes, chicken broth, and water to the pot. Bring to a boil, and, then, reduce the heat. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Add the cauliflower and zucchini. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Add the peas and heat through.

Season with the sea salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese to taste.

Enjoy from Cape Cod Soups!
