Title: Basic Vegetable Soup.
Post by: I.B Igor on October 10, 2012, 09:15:22 PM

This is what I made yesterday. Its simple and Vegetarian.

2 onions, chopped,

4/5 carrots chopped roughly ,

2 Courgettes, cut into chunks ( or a small marrow)

I tin chopped tomatoes ,

I vegetable stock cube, made up to half pint ,

Black pepper/ pinch of salt.

Place all  vegetables  in a large saucepan,add tomatoes, and stock , stir ,  bring to boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes until all vegetables are soft. Blitz smooth in a blender, or leave chunky.

Its good cheap food, and very versatile, I add celery, potatoes , mushrooms, and anything in my veg rack that looks past its best. To make a huge amount, add more carrots, and four courgettes , and an extra tin of tomatoes.   

It can be frozen, and keeps well for a day or two in a fridge, you can add ham/chicken or any other cooked meat to it, while re heating. I like it with chopped cooked bacon, and extra mushrooms, dry fried in a pan, than added. 

Great with a good granary loaf, and lots of butter.  $%$
