This potage aux legumes is a homemade French vegetable soup made with fresh vegetables and blended into a creamy, smooth puree. This vegan soup is great any time of the year, but it’s especially comforting in colder weather.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 sweet or yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery, sliced
  • 2 turnip, chopped
  • 1 large zucchini, chopped
  • 3 small potatoes, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, juice drained
  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 teaspoon bouillon (vegetable or chicken)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • Black pepper, to taste


  • Heat a large Dutch oven to medium-high. Add olive oil and vegetables (not the tomatoes). Sauté until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add water, bouillon, tomatoes, bay leaf and salt & pepper. Bring soup to a boil.
  • Cover the pot and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until vegetables have softened completely, about 20 minutes.
  • Blend soup until smooth before serving. If needed, adjust seasoning with salt & pepper, to taste.
