    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 bay leaf, fresh or dried
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    2 onions, sliced

Heat a medium soup pot over medium heat. Add extra-virgin olive oil, bay, chopped garlic and onions and let

  • I tweaked this one a bit. Added some spinach, celery, mushrooms, and leeks to give even more veggie variety. Didn't have the fire roasted tomatoes so just used regular diced and add some "heat" of my own. It turned out great!! Thanks for the recipe! - 1/17/11
