Notes

I have pressure cooked veggies. Feel free to simmer it on stovetop in a large pot / pan with enough water until they are tender. It should be done under 15 minutes.
You can use an immersion blender to expedite the process.
Use desired herbs , spices, veggies and toppings.
Add more water for thinner consistency soup .
