I had never made soup before in my life! This was so easy and it turned out great. The taste was really nice. Next time im making a big pan of it and freezing some.... if it lasts that long!

This is the first soup ive made myself. Im just learning to cook and it was simple to follow and very tasty, excellent for using up left over veg. I used mushrooms in mine and follwed it advice of Heleninitaly, and it was excellent.

I make this regularly and it's so nice. Try frying an onion with garlic and a dried chilli pepper or chilli flakes for a bit of a kick, then add the potatoes with some dried corriander, then add the veg and fry. I usually give it a good 5 mins to soften all the veg before adding the stock. Real winter warmer!

Added some lentils and pearl barley, very satisfying soup on a winters day, also put some into containers and froze to take to work for a packed lunch

great taste but thought it needed a little more water or stock as it had a very thick consistency.
