OK, I just have to post this recipe because it is SO good and impossibly easy to make.

-Several zucchinis or one monster that you lost in the garden, cut into chunks
-One large onion, chopped
-Three carrots, chopped

Place these in a stockpot, with a little olive oil and saute till the onion starts to become translucent.

-Then add 3 cups of chicken or vegetable stock and cook veggies till they are mushy.
-Remove from heat.
-Add 4 ounces of cream cheese( you may use light cream cheese) and stir it into the mixture.
-add salt and pepper to taste, about a 1/2 t. cumin and a 1/2 t. Italian seasoning. You can add more cumin, if you like...just depends on your taste.
-Puree soup, in batches, in your blender. Puree till soup is uber smooth and creamy.
-If soup is too thick, you may thin it with more stock, or some milk.

Seriously, this is the most yummy soup.
It tastes absolutely gourmet and only you know how simple it is to prepare.
A great way to eat your veggies and not too evil, especially when you use light cream cheese!
