End of Week Soup

Got some veg lurking in the bottom of your fridge or hiding in the back of your cupboard thats not looking as good as it once was? Make lasts weeks veg into this weeks soup! Perfect to heat up and have once you get home for the first few nights of the following week. 

Depends how much veg you have to use up but the amount below made 6 portions of soup.

Heres what I had to use up:

  • 1 Large Red onion (diced)
  • 1 Leek (sliced)
  • 3 Small Shallots (halfed)
  • 2 White Potatoes (diced)
  • 1 Brocolli (chopped)
  • 3 sticks of Celery (sliced)
  • 1 Large Courgette (diced)
  • 8 Spears of Asparagus (chopped)

And heres what I added:

  • 3 Cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Herbs de Provence
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 Vegetable Stock Cubes in 1 litre of Boiling water
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 tsp of Vegan Bouillion


What you have to do:

  1. On Medium Heat, spray a little oil into the bottom of a deep/large saucepan. Add in garlic and onion and fry until slightly soft then add in remaining vegetables. Give a good stir for a few minutes.
  2. Stir in rosemary, thyme, herbs de provence and garlic powder. Then pour in veg stock and add in bouillion, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 30-45 minutes.
  3. Taking pan off the heat and using a hand blender or food processor (you will need to blend in batches if using a food processor to avoid overflowing) blend contents of pan until slightly smooth or to your desired consistency. Do a final taste test and add in more salt, pepper and herbs if you feel it is required and heat for further 5 mins.
