This is probably the easiest, most tasty veggie soup ever. And you can tweak it according to what you like. Unfortunately, I don't have any exact measurements, so just add some, taste, add more, taste, or whatever.

When I make it I generally use:
4 potatoes
2 yams
1 large onion
1 - 3 bell peppers (whichever color you prefer)
4 beets
5 carrots
4 tomatoes

Those are the ones I always use, you can pretty much use whichever others you like. Asparagus, zucchini, beans, peas, are all good. Peel the beets first and chop them into little cube-ish pieces. Boil them while you chop all the rest up because it takes a long time to get them nice and soft. Now peel (if necessary) and chop all the veggies into little cubes (we'll say about 1 inch cubes). Preheat the oven to about 350 degrees (F). Then put all the veggies (drain the beets and include them too!) into a big bowl (or two bowls because there's a lot of veggies). And drizzle with olive oil, then add seasonings. I usually use rosemary, thyme, basil. Toss the veggies in the seasonings and then spread them out on cookie sheets. Don't worry about making it a single layer or anything, they can be kind of heaping. Then throw them in the oven for 1 hour to get nice and soft. When they're almost done, put a really big pot on the stove and put either water or vegetable stock in and get it heating up. You'll have to experiment with how much you want, but don't use too much. When your hour is up, take the veggies out and put about 3/4 (this you'll experiment with too) into the blender/food processor and get them all mushed up, then add to the pot. Finally, add the chunks that you have left into the soup and mix it all up. We usually add some hot sauce because it gives more flavor, but you'll have to figure out how you like it best.
Anyways, it makes tons of soup, and it's really good leftover! I hope my recipe doesn't suck too bad, just play with it and enjoy!
