Veggie Compote

This is a perfect food for the (still) chilly days of spring! (or a rainy day anywhere). It is a savory compote to be sure. And easy. Easy to make. You will quickly agree that it's nutritious without being boring in the taste department. 

-6 to 8 cups water 
-4 veggie bouillion cubes
-2 large heads of broccoli
-2 carrots, peeled and cut
-1 potato or 1 cup of squash
-6 to 8 baby bellas
-1 large tomato or 5 small grape tomatoes
-6 garlic cloves
-2 celery stalks, cut
-1/2 cup fresh cilantro
-1/2 cup soy sauce
-1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
-1/3 cup corn starch
-a dash of salt

What to do?
Add the water to large soup pot and the veggie cubes, let it boil. Then add squash or potato and carrots, garlic, broccoli (stems an all), bellas, celery, tomatoes, cilantro, soy sauce, red pepper, and salt. 
 Cover and let it cook together for 15 minutes until everything is soft.
Blend everything together in blender--adding the corn starch little by little while you blend your soup. You will have to blend it in several batches. After the blended soup is back in pot, cover and cook it on low for about 5 minutes. This makes about 8 servings.

 Ready to serve!
