This quick and very tasty recipe is true winter comfort food. Its extreme simplicity is not deceiving, just delicious. The soups is best if the vegetables used are fresh and in season (better if organic). With fresh garden vegetables, for example, the flavor changes completely.

A good vegetable stock and excellent extra virgin olive oil make all the difference and make this soup a dish rich in vitamins and nutrients.
