Ingredients

    2 Tbsp olive oil
    3 leeks, medium or large
    1 medium zucchini
    1 medium-large potato
    1/4 cup or so chopped onion
    3 cloves garlic
    5-6 cups no-salt-added vegetable broth
    3 bay leaves
    parmesan cheese for topping
    salt and pepper to taste.


Directions

Heat vegetable stock on the stove in a 2-quart saucepan.

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Sweat the onions and garlic. Add the zucchini, potato and leek and cook for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat. Add the hot stock and bay leaves. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Blend the soup with a stick blender or in batches in the food processor. Stir in the cream and season to taste. I found it needed a healthy dose of salt, and I used white pepper.

Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

(Try poaching an egg in this soup - it's great!)
