Favorite Vegetable Soup
3 medium sized leeks (with 1 inch of green left on)
4 medium sized carrots
3 medium sized parsnips
2 tbl. minced garlic
4 1/2 cups vegetable broth
6 new red potatoes, cut into 1 inch squares
8 ripe plum tomatoes, peeled -or- 1 can (28 ounces) plum tomatoes, drained
1/4 cup coarsely chopped parsley

Trim, clean and finely dice leeks, carrots and parsnips. Combine in a bowl
with the garlic.
Put 1/2 cup of vegetable broth in a large pot. Add the diced vegetables and
cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 10 minutes.
Add the rest of the broth and the potatoes. Cook, covered over medium-low
heat for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook, covered, for 15
minutes. Uncover and cook another 15 minutes more to enrich the broth.
