  • 4 c Water
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 4 ts Vegetable instant bouillon
  • 1 ts Dried fennel seed, crushed
  • 1/2 ts Dried thyme leaves
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 md Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Stalk celery, chopped
  • (1/2cup)
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 md (2 lb) baking potatoes,

  • 1 c Packed fresh parsley

  • Chopped (about 1/2cup)
  • 1/8 To 1/4 tsp coarsely ground

In Dutch oven, combine all ingredients except parsley and pepper; mix well.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and simmer 15 to 20
minutes or until vegetables are very tender. Remove bay leaf. With potato
masher, mash vegetables into broth to make a thick chunky mixture.
(Garbanzo beans will not mash as thoroughly as other vegetables; leave as
is for extra texture.) Stir in parsley and pepper. Serve immediately. Makes
6 (1 1/2 cup) servings.

TIP: To speed preparation, use food processor with metal blade to chop
onion, celery, and garlic. Replace metal blade with thin slicing disk;
slice potatoes and carrots on top of chopped vegetables. Remove all
vegetables from bowl. Clean and dry bowl before chopping parsley with metal
