I really enjoyed the flavor of this soup and it's easy to make too. The last line of item 3 should be at the end of item 4; "Puree soup with a blender or mixer and salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!" You puree it after simmering 45 minutes.

you are not allowed peas or carrots or milk on induction! I would not recommend eating this on atkins induction unless you omit the peas and carrots and milk!

For a twist you can roast the veggies instead of sauteing them.
