30 Minute Creamy Vegetable Soup

Check this out! It's not a dessert recipe!!

Maybe I shouldn't be eating dessert to build up insulation against the cold. I should be fighting the cold weather with soup.

30 Minute Creamy Vegetable Soup

I have actually been making a lot of soup lately. This is the first one I posted because I am way too tempted to eat ALL OF THE SOUP without thinking of taking pictures of it. #foodbloggerfail.

But this time, I remembered that people probably don't want to be seeing desserts all the time on food blogs. We need real people food. And winter is the season of soups.

Actually the main reason I had the chance to take pictures of this soup is because my boyfriend is too sick to eat at the moment. Which means that I made this HUGE pot of soup...just for me. Which also means I get a lot of it to take pictures of. So, you know...win win all around. Except for maybe my boyfriend who has only had a bowl of applesauce in the past 24 hours.

30 Minute Creamy Vegetable Soup

The title of this recipe is a little misleading. It's not really creamy in the sense that there is actual cream in the soup. Because there isn't. This soup makes it feel like you are eating a deliciously decadent creamy soup when in reality, it is actually a pretty healthy soup. What more would you want in a soup?

This super simple soup will definitely be on my regular rotation from now on. Because I always have all of the ingredients on hand. And this soup is so freaking delicious.
