Vegetable Soup

This recipe isn't as useful during Lent or Dormition Fast since almost all of the days of those fasts are oil-free, but this is a handy recipe for Advent, when there are many oil days.

4 tablesspoons olive oil
3 chopped leeks
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 baby bear pumpkin, peeled and chopped to bite-size
4 Chantenay carrots, sliced to 1/8" to 1/14"
1 small/medium jicama, diced
2 russet potatoes, diced
kosher salt
2 quarts vegetable broth
black pepper

Heat oil over medium heat in soup pot. When hot add garlic and leeks and a picnch of salt. Cook till they start to sweat. Add all other solid ingredients, stir constantly for 5 minutes. Add all vegetable stock, put heat to high, bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer. Add salt to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pepper to taste.
