Vegetable Soup

I love whipping up a soup. It’s so easy, you near enough just throw everything in a pan and let it take care of itself.

I had a mountain of veg that was just crying out to be used up.

Very simply, I peeled and very roughly chopped:

2 small potatoes
a handful of carrots
a red onion
a white onion
a cabbage
a good handful of sprouts
2 leeks

I add the potato as a thickening agent. Otherwise, any veggies you have begging, just throw them in! I also put in a chicken stock pot (use veggie stock if you’re keeping it all vegetarian), some course black pepper, paprika, onion salt and dried basil.

Top up the pot with water and allow to simmer until all the veggies are soft, then liquidise to your liking with either a handheld whizzy thing, or blender.

Once smooth, I allow some blue cheese to melt in. Again this is optional, depending on your taste or dietary requirements.
