Simmer the soup until the vegetables are tender. Puree in blender or food
processor until smooth. Add salt/pepper to taste. Serve

NOTES : Instead of stock or vegetable bouillon cubes, you can take out 1/2
cup of soup after pureeing and dissolve a tablespoon of miso in it, then
return it to the pot and mix. Almost all of these combinations are good
with the addition of 1/2 an onion and a clove or two of garlic sauteed in
sherry. Other possible additions (not combined, of course):
: a tablespoon of tomato paste
: 1/2 cup of leftover beans or grains
: a few dried mushrooms or dried tomatoes
: a few tablespoons of sauerkraut
: a tablespoon of capers or chopped pickle added before serving
: a tablespoon of yogurt swirled in right before serving (pretty!)
: toasted pumpkin/squash seeds or wheat germ sprinkled on top
