I must admit I’m a bit lazy when it comes to soup, I favour the blended kind when it doesn’t matter how everything gets chopped. It is actually a nice change to make a soup like this though…
I don’t think I’ve ever chopped so much veg before…
See how organised I’m being with this recipe!!
First off I fried the leek, onion and garlic..
Then I added the stock and the carrot, turnip and celery..
I was going to use macaroni but then found a packet of soup pasta so I opted to use that instead, but I didn’t add at this stage because I didn’t think it needed that long cooking.
After 30 minutes I added the cabbage, beans and peas..
Then I added the bacon and opted to use tomato paste..
So after about an hour of chopping and then an hour of cooking it was ready..
I did rather annoyingly forget the Parmesan!! So had just as it is..
Well this must be more than one of my five a day or eight a day or whateve the reccomended veg intake is! It is absolutely packed with veg, and I was a bit tempted to add a little more stock. It does taste good and is very filling. I’ve made loads so this will keep us going for a few days!
Would I make this again? Yes..
