  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, divided use
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Nutritional yeast
  • Fresh thyme leaves

  2. Add 1/2 cup water, cover, and adjust heat so mixture simmers gently. Cook 20 to 30 minutes, until tender. If water evaporates before veggies are ready, add a little more water.

  4. Purée vegetables until smooth, adding a bit more water, as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Swirl in 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  5. Serve warm sprinkled with thyme and nutritional yeast, if desired.
  6. Cook's Tip:
  7. Can be made up to 2 days ahead and kept chilled. Reheat gently before serving.
  8. For added flavor, use your favorite broth in place of water.
