Vegetable Soup, Velouté


While celery, leeks, onions and carrots are the basis for a traditional vegetable soup, I chose to also use courgettes as well as parsley in this soup.

Instead of using ready-made vegetable broth/stock, try to replace with herbed water (bay leaves, thyme, oregano).

Sumac adds a lemony touch to the soup that seems to be so much needed by the veggies.
