Method

  1. Heat a large non-stick pan, tip in half the vegetables and the garlic, and cook, stirring, over a high heat until they start to soften – about 5 mins. Tip in the basil, tomatoes, stock cube and 2 cans of water, then blitz with a hand blender to get the mixture as smooth as you can.

  2. Add the remaining frozen veg, cover the pan and cook for 15-20 mins more until the veg is tender. Ladle into bowls. Serve with the herby ricotta on rye bread.

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.
