  • Do you love your garlic?  Go ahead and add garlic and fry a little.
  • Add all the other remaining vegetable ingredients.
  • Add +-3 Litres of water. Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer or pressure cook until done.
  • Mix the 2 packets of soup powder with a little water, add slowly to the pot, stirring to prevent lumping.
  • Simmer further for +- 30 minutes.
  • Add another packet of soup powder if the soup is too thin, or more water if the soup is too thick.
  • You can add salt if required. (I use barbecue spice).
  • Garnish with parsley and serve with fresh buttered bread.
