Easy Vegetable Potage Soup with Cheesy Baguettes

This creamy vegetable potage soup is healthy, warming and soul-satisfying. It’s the meal I turn to when I’m craving a hug—it’s easy-to-make and will soothe you from the inside out. I pair it with toasted, cheesy baguettes (oh, swoon?) for a mid-week meal that my whole family adores.

What is potage?

Potage is a thick soup that’s usually pureed. It has its origins in France and was a staple of medieval cuisine (if you’ve ever heard the term “potage garden,” that’s where it comes from, as the vegetables were used to make potage). It’s usually served at the start of a meal.
