I've learned a couple of new vegetarian soup recipes recently that my husband and I love.

Pea-Basil OR Broccoli-Arugula Soup from

1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, roughly diced
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced

2/3 lb trimmed broccoli, chopped OR frozen peas
2 1/2 cups water
salt & pepper to taste

3/4 cup arugula or fresh basil leaves
1/2 lemon, juiced

(1) Saute onion & garlic in oil for a couple of minutes.
(2) Add broccoli and saute for a few minutes till bright green, then add water. OR add frozen peas and water. Add salt & pepper. Bring to boil, then simmer till soft, around 8 minutes.
(3) Using a stick blender (or pour into a blender or food processor in batches), blend in the arugula or basil till fairly smooth, and then add the lemon.

These taste even better than they sound. For an ordinary dinner, DH & I enjoy these with a nice salad with complex ingredients since the soup is simple. For company, these soups make a nice first course.
