"This smooth and flavorful vegetable soup is a family recipe. It can be served as an elegant first course, but we also find it makes great diet fare when eaten with a loaf of French bread."

  1. Cook onion and garlic in butter over medium high heat until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, water, carrots, leeks, green onions, habanero peppers, spinach, and watercress. Bring to a low boil, and cook for 30 minutes, or until carrots are soft. Remove from heat, and allow to cool for 30 minutes.
  2. Puree in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to the pot, and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes before serving. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil or vinegar, or both, if desired.

A wonderful soup for my low acid diet.

I didn't have spinach so I used cut up Bok choy. added some small pasta and served with fresh buns. It was great. I'll make it again with spinach next time. Also, I added 1 TBSP of Kitchen Bouq...
