Perfect vegetable soup

Soup is great for bulk-making those weekly lunches – just cook ahead of time and store in the fridge or freezer. Healthy and satisfying, this soup is great with brown bread on those cold winter days.

What you need:

  • 2 carrots
  • 1 onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 leek
  • 1 parsnip
  • fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
  • salt and pepper

What you do:

  1. Chop the onion, carrot, parsnip, leek and celery into pieces; you’ll be blending it anyway so it doesn’t need to be perfect.
  2. Heat a tbsp of olive oil in a large saucepan and add all the veg. Cook for about 5 minutes and season well.
  3. Add the tbsp of bouillon powder and cover the veg with boiling water.
  4. Cook over low-medium heat until the veg has softened.
  5. Add the chopped fresh parsley.
  6. Allow to cool and use a hand-blender to blend the soup.
  7. Serve with your favourite brown bread.
