I used 500g casserole pack, 600g potatoes, 3 rashers smoked back bacon, 80g lentils, 2 teaspoons chilli flakes, ground pepper, 1500ml chicken stock - fried bacon and chilli flakes first then added veg for 5-10 mins before adding stock and pepper - delicious though next time will reduce amount of bacon as very smokey. Great way to use up veg destined for the bin!

Made soup today - it was lovely. I've used: 4 potatoes, 4 carrots, 1 small sweed, 2 small onions, 3 parsnips and a handful of frozen peppers and 2 cloves of garlic with salt and pepper to taste. I fried onion and garlic first then all the veg. Made a large pan full and once I'd blended it, it's a lovely thick tasty soup - mmmmm!!

Good way to use up the tail enders of vegetables so this time it was potato, onion, cauliflower and mangetouts in a good turkey stock. Heartwarming stuff!

I've never made a soup before, and this was easy and great for using up the leftovers of veg.. I used 3 Potatoes, A large parsnip, carrots, leek, onion, garlic and a few slices of fresh root ginger with some grated nutmeg and seasoning.. I like it! The rest of the house are yet to try it, fingers crossed!

I cooked potaoes, 2 small cloves of garlic, leeks, parsnips and swede. I mashed them all together as don't have a blender then added veg stock to the right consintency so can be adjusted accordingly to however thick you want the soup to be. Then added a teaspoon of medium curry powder and fresh parsley and it is delicious :)

Great. Very quick and easy. Good recipe as you can make it frequently but without getting bored as the veg is different each time.

My first attempt at making soup and it's delicious! So simple too. I used potatoes, carrots, parsnips, garlic and some mild chilli powder for a bit of a kick. Will definitely be making it again!

Very nice, I fried some bacon and cut it into bits, so that one could help oneself to the bacon as decoration on the soup. Tasted yummy!
