  • Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer and cover. Cook 20-30 minutes or until all veggies are soft. (This time will depend on how large your vegetable chunks were!) Once everything is tender, remove bay leaves and puree soup using a blender or immersion blender.

I just like a hint of thyme in this recipe, so try it out as is and then adjust it to your liking!
