The soup takes about an hour to prepare -- mainly because the vegetables need to cook for about 30 minutes to become soft enough to puree. When serving the soup, pair it with a frisee salad.

Cook's Notes

This soup freezes beautifully- ladle into a storage container, and reheat for an easy weekday meal (But once you've defrosted the soup, you shouldn't refreeze it.)
