Really nice soup. Quick, simple and surprisingly flavourful despite the sparseness of the ingredients. We used a Lidl 'Italian style' veg mix, which had all of the usual suspects plus some black olives. Noteworthy, as I would definitely turn up the black olives if I was to do this again. I would only add that 400g of veg seemed a little conservative. The pack we used was 750g, the more the merrier imo!

Delicious! A light yet satisfying soup. I have played around with the vegetables that go in using whatever is at hand & even added bits of walnut to it for an extra bite.

Lovely soup. Used fresh vegetables and grilled them before adding them to the soup. I also used chicken stock instead of water and a vegetable stock cube so it wasn't vegetarian any more but we all loved the added, fresh flavours.
