  1. Peel and chop in small pieces one big onion and three cloves of garlic.

@lbssoaps 8143666: If you are worried about the amount of oil in this recipe, you can skip step 5 and still have a delicious soup. Additionally, you can omit the olive oil from the recipe, but the resulting soup will not be as rich as a result. Hope this helps! - FaveHealthyRecipes Editors

well this looked healthy until the last paragraph when you are asked to make balls of vegs and FRY them - not good! - especially as there is oil in the recipe already!
