Suggestions

Use those leftovers!: Add your leftover or favorite chopped veggies to equal 1 cup, such as turnips, parsnips, acorn or butternut squash. Add more stock or liquid if needed.

Keep it allium free:  Use 1/2 fennel bulb, chopped, in place of onion and garlic.

Make it buttery:  Use butter in place of oil.

Like it creamy:  Add 1 cup cream or non-dairy milk.

Thick and rich: Add 1 tablespoon tomato paste

Give it that hearty taste: Use chicken stock.
