Farmer's Market Fall Soup

Went to the Farmer's Market on Tuesday and found a few fall vegetables.  Decided to make soup.

Sorry, no pictures this time.  So without further ado, here is the recipe:


1 Medium White Onion
1 Bunch Carrots
1 Bunch Golden Beets
1 Medium Delicata Squash
5 Cloves Garlic
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper To Taste
1/2 Tsp Each:  Parsley, Sage, Cumin, Turmeric, Hot Pepper Flakes
Juice of 1/2 Lime
3/4 Cup Cheese, Grated (Cheddar, or other cheese or mix of cheeses)
Water or chicken or vegetable stock


Clean, peel and chop vegetables into 3/4" cubes
(You may not need to peel the carrots and beets, just clean & remove stray root threads)
Sauté onions and garlic until nearly translucent
(You may want to add the garlic a little later than the onion as garlic cooks faster)
Add the chopped vegetables and enough water or stock to completely cover them
Bring all to a boil, then turn down the heat to a simmer temperature
Add seasonings
Allow to simmer until all vegetables are soft
Adjust seasonings to taste
Run it through a blender so you have a nice puree
Add grated cheese, stir to melt
Add juice of 1/2 lime (if lime is not juicy, use the whole lime)

Serve with a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt, and a sprinkle of finely chopped carrot greens as a garnish.  I used yogurt, and had a few slices of buttered baguette on the side to dip into the soup.  It was really quite delicious!
