Vegetable Soup

vegetable soup

This is a quick and easy soup using whatever vegetables you have in the fridge.

Simply chop the vegetables into small pieces and just cover with boiling water, add a tablespoon of vegetable bouillon and cook until the vegetables until tender.

Use a hand blender to blend the vegetables into a soup. Adjust the seasoning and serve with crusty bread.

The amounts used are up to you, I usually choose a large saucepan, fill it with various chopped vegetables until halfway and then fill with boiling water so the water comes just above the vegetables.
