In a large pot, add all vegetables, seasonings, and broth. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
Once veggies are tender, use a stick immersion hand blender to blend the soup until smooth. If you notice the soup is too thick, add a little more broth, but be careful. You do not want the soup to be runny and watery.
Pour into bowls and top with a little Parmesan cheese and/or pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
