Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 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.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
MAKE YOUR CHUNKY MEDITERRANEAN SOUP DIFFERENTLY

Create a speedy minestrone instead.  Follow the recipe, above, but replace the basil and tomatoes with a 500g carton passata (and 2 cartons water) and 3 tbsp pesto, and use mixed garden vegetables (carrots, peas, beans, corn) instead of the grilled ones. There is no need to pre-fry or blitz the soup, just tip everything into a pan with 50g snapped wholewheat spaghetti and boil for 12 mins. (Omit the ricotta and bread.)
