I’m happy to share with you a soup recipe that is a big hit in our home. Everyone can enjoy it because it’s gluten-free. If you’re dairy free, skip the cheese; it’s optional. And if you’re following a low-carb way of eating you can eliminate the carrots.
I use my Vitamix; it’s a super high-powered blender and makes preparation fast and easy.
Have a happy healthy day.

- Pour onion mixture into a large pot. Add 4 cups of water, chopped onion, chopped broccoli, sliced carrots, chopped celery and all the wonderful seasonings and bring to a boil. Then cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
