Step 1

Step 2

Pour in the stock, salt, and spices and simmer for 20 minutes to tenderise the veggies. After cooling, combine the soup with an immersion blender or normal blender until smooth.

Step 3

Blend in batches if needed. Return the soup to the stockpot and boil until hot, seasoning as needed.

Step 4

Whisk the ingredients until smooth, adding enough water to make the sauce pourable. Pour over cooked soup.
