Hearty Vegetable Soup

RECIPE OVERVIEW

It freezes exceptionally well so you can just freeze it in small containers and regenerate as required.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 2 medium Carrots
  • 2 stick Celery
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • 1 medium Leek
  • 1 medium Onion
  • 50 g SuperValu Butter
  • 300 g SuperValu Butternut Squash
  • 1 - Sweet Potatoes
Seasoning
  • 1200 ml Chicken Stock Cube
    or vegetable stock
To garnish
  • 1 tbsp Creme Fraiche
  • 1 tbsp SuperValu Parsley
    chopped

Method

  1. Begin by chopping all of the vegetables and garlic.
  2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and then add in the vegetables.
  3. Sauté gently for 4-5 minutes until some of the smaller vegetables are beginning to soften.
  4. Next add in approximately two thirds of the chicken or vegetable stock and bring the mixture to a slow boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for an additional 15-20 minutes or until all of the vegetables have softened down completely.
  5. Using a hand blitzer, blitz the soup until it is nice and smooth. Return to the heat and bring back to a very gentle boil.
  6. If you would like a thinner soup, now would be the best time to add some additional stock to thin it down. Correct the seasoning at this stage also.
  7. Transfer it to your serving bowls or cups and garnish the soup with a little crème fraiche and chopped parsley.
  8. Serve as required or alternatively allow the soup to cool down and then transfer it into suitable containers and freeze until required.
