Pea, Leek And Broccoli Soup (High-Fiber)

We had this soup for dinner tonight along with fresh fruit and bread.  I
like the way the recipe writer gave an overview of the process at the
beginning of the directions.  I skipped the parsley and added Better than
Bouillon.  The recipe was originally posted on another list.

30 minutes when vegetables are coarsely chopped in a food processor and
pureed with a potato masher.

stir together.  Cover; bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring.

10 mintues, stirring occasionally.

in blender or food processor until smooth.

saucepan and reheat gently until piping hot.  Ladel into soup bowls and
garnish with parsley leaves.
