    This soup is easy to make, serves as a great base for improvisation, freezes great and is delicious. I made it for my family when we started our weekly vegetarian day and it helped win them over.

    This is an excellent and delicious base recipe. I made changes to fit my family's taste and for ease: 1. used coconut oil instead of olive 2. added 1/2 tsp coriander while simmering 3. used vine tomatoes instead of beefsteak 4. reduced the liquid quite a bit more 5. used an immersion blender to puree This is even better the next day, and it freezes beautifully. I will be making this again and again.
