Vegetable soup is a common soup prepared using vegetables and leaf vegetables as primary ingredients. It dates to ancient history, and is a mass-produced food product in contemporary times. (Wikipedia)
1 double packet (1kg) pre-cut vegetables (Chunky Vegetable pack) – this includes: butternut/pumpkin, potato, leeks, onions, carrots, parsnips and turnips.
To make it more butternut like, I add 1kg butternut extra
Place into big pot and either put about 2 vegetable cubes or I use vegetable powder so about 2 heaped tablespoons.
I also put a bit of onion powdered stock – about 1 tablespoon and a nice “helping” of table salt.
The stock powder is a bit salty but for me, not salty enough and lots of people don’t like too much salt so this I leave to your taste buds.
Cover with water plus and let cook till vegetables are nice and soft.
You may have to add a bit more water – not a problem.
Put as much as you think just to boil till veggies are soft.
It can take up to 2 hours. Don’t cook on very high heat.
Let it cool slightly and I personally prefer my soup blitzed so I use my blender stick and blitz still smooth.
Let cool completely and decant if need be as it freezes beautifully. (We are only 2 so this gives at least 8 generous meals).
Quick, Easy and simple. Enjoy👍
