This is a great winter soup, I make it thick, so it is more like a vegetable stew. It's is lovely with a chunk of crusty, buttered bread!
I onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
4 large carrots, chopped
4 stalks of celery, chopped
3 potatoes, chopped
2 leeks, sliced,
1 turnip, chopped
2 pints vegetable stock
salt and pepper
- Fry the onion and garlic in a little olive oil until softened.
- Add the chopped vegetables and cook on low for 10 minutes, stir frequently.
- Add the vegetable stock and leave to simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes.
- Add fresh herbs and season with salt and pepper.
And it does warm the cockles of your heart! Especially if you sprinkle too much cayenne pepper on top!
