This vegetable soup is something I’ve always wanted to try myself after watching my Mum make it for years. I’ve probably been eating it every winter of my entire life and it never fails to make me feel warm and cosy.It was a lot easier and quicker than I thought it would be. It’s also perfect if you have some vegetables that are going to go off as you can just lash whatever you like in. In my cooking adventures I’ve really discovered the power of a chicken/vegetable stock cube and how it can add to any dish.
Give it a go yourself its perfect comfort food for the Irish winter that is approaching :).
3 Carrots, chopped into chunks
3 sticks of Celery, chopped into chunks
1 large Potato, chopped into chunks
1 Onion, chopped
1 Chicken or Vegetable Stock Cube
Salt and Pepper
Wash and cut all vegetable.
In a large pot add some olive oil and butter and let simmer.
After a few minutes add about half a kettle of boiled water.
Then add broken up stock cube, some salt and pepper.
Place lid half on and let simmer for about 20 minutes until vegetables are soft but not mushy.
If you like you can serve soup like this or my preference which is blending it all together making it thick.
Best served when there is hailstorm/raining/snow/extreme wind outside :)
