As written, this recipe is a soup full of vegetable chunks in a thickened broth. You can also, however, puree it after cooking using an immersion blender for a creamy variation. Both variations will warm you up on a cold day.

  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 (14½ oz.) cans fat-free, low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp. basil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups evaporated skim milk

    Optional garnishes*:

    • Fresh celery leaves

Directions

  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a 4 1/2-quart slow cooker.
  2. Cook, covered, at HIGH until vegetables are tender (3 hours).
  3. Stir together flour and evaporated skim milk; stir into soup. Cover and cook until thoroughly heated (30 minutes). Serve in Italian Bread Bowls, and garnish with celery leaves, if desired.
