  • Summary

    Don't let the 1/2 cup of peas left over from Latin–Style Chicken and Rice languish in your freezer. Whip up a batch of this comforting—and easy—vegetarian soup. Puréeing a small amount of the soup thickens the broth just enough to make it rich and velvety. A last–minute sprinkling of chopped dill underscores the soup's fresh flavor.

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 Turkish or 1/2 California bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
    • 1 celery rib, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    • 1/2 pound sweet potato, peeled and cubed (1/2 inch)
    • 1/2 pound Yukon Gold or boiling potatoes, peeled and cubed (1/2 inch)
    • 2 cups reduced-sodium vegetable or chicken broth
    • 1 1/2 cups water
    • 1/2 cup frozen peas
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
