Picked a bag of veg up from the farmers’ market for £1.50 and it made enough soup for a week. It’s easy to make and will keep in the freezer.
40g of unsalted butter (Recipe could easily be made vegan by substituting the butter for olive oil or vegan spread)
2 celeriac, peeled and chopped
4 large carrots, peeled and chopped
4 medium sized potatoes, peeled and chopped
2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 litre of hot vegetable stock (I used 2 Knorr stock pots)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a large pan, melt the butter then add the onion, carrots and celeriac.
Stir to cover the veg in some butter, put a lid on the pan and cook over a gentle heat for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
Add the potatoes and stock, make sure the stock covers all the veg.
Season with freshly ground pepper and a little salt, remember there’s probably already salt in the stock so don’t overdo it!
Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until the veg is cooked.
With a stick blender, purée the soup leaving some lumpy veg.
Serve in hot bowls with a chunky wedge of bread!
