I had a quiet afternoon for a change and a few random vegetables knocking about the place so I decided to make soup – it’s healthier than cake 😉
As with all my recipes this is another really easy one so here you go:
- Half an onion
- Splash of oil
- Two carrots
- One parsnip
- One sweet potato
- One vegetable stock cube
- Handful of herbs (optional) – (I used parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme – ooh now I’m singing 😉 )
- One tsp Flavoured salt – I used one from Trimilawn Farm Herbs – if you are in Sligo you’ll find them at Strandhill Market
Chop and lightly fry the onion in the oil. Chop all the other veg, I chopped mine very roughly as it gets blended at the end. I put about two pints of water in on top of the onion (I don’t have a measuring jug so I guessed). Add the veg, the herbs, stock cube and seasoning and leave to simmer until the vegetables are cooked. Give it a taste and if it needs any other seasoning just add it, mine was grand. Bung it in a blender (don’t burn your hand like I did!) It was more like a broth at this stage so I put it back in the saucepan and added about half a pint of water….and that’s it. Quick, easy and feeds two.
I make a gallon at at time and fast-freeze, in measured pints, for convenience.
Home Store + More have an excellent supply of measured Pyrex jugs.
I don’t have soup very often so it’s a treat when I do.
Happy souping to you too! 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Enjoy the ‘treat’ often. It’s a full, healthy meal 🙂
