Lime juice enhances the flavor of the avocado and ensures that the soup will hold its green color for up to two hours.

NotesVegetable Broth

Amounts and types of vegetables may be varied, but avoid strong-flavored vegetables, such as cabbage, that might overpower the broth.

1 tablespoon cold-pressed canola oil

2 large onions, quartered (including peel)

2 celery ribs, coarsely chopped (including leaves)

3 carrots, coarsely chopped

1 potato (skin on), sliced

2 garlic cloves, unpeeled, crushed

½ cup chopped parsley (including stems)

2 bay leaves.

1½ teaspoons salt

¾ teaspoon black peppercorns

Heat the oil in a large pot. Add the onions, celery, and carrots, cover and cook 5 minutes over medium heat. Add the potato, garlic, parsley, bay leaves, salt, and peppercorns. Cover vegetables with twice the amount of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Simmer for an hour or more. Strain through a colander into another pot. The broth can now be used in recipes or cooled, portioned, and stored in the freezer for future use.
