   Simmer the soup until the veggies are tender.  Puree in blender or
   food processor until smooth.  Add salt/pepper to taste.
   
   Sally’s notes:  Instead of stock of bouillon cubes, you can take out
   1/2c soup after pureeing and dissolve a T of miso in it, then return
   it to the pot and mix. Almost all the combos 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) include: 1T
   tomato paste, 1/2c leftover beans or grains, a few dried mushrooms or
   dried tomatoes, a few tablespoons of sauerkraut, a T of capers or
   chopped pickle added before serving, toasted pumpkin/squash seeds or
   wheat germ sprinkled on top.
