Super simple vegetable soup

Can you think of anything more wholesome and warming on a chilly autumn day than a steaming bowl of vegetable soup? Even better if all the yummy veggies are locally sourced right!?

We’ve put together a little recipe and you can find all the ingredients in the farm shop. Don’t forget to pick up a French stick for dunking.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 chopped medium onion
  • 1 finely chopped stalk of celery
  • 2 peeled and chopped carrots
  • 2 peeled and chopped parsnips
  • 1 grated clove of garlic
  • 2 peeled and cubed potatoes, we have Melody and Wilja varieties in store
  • 1 tbsp of fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 large bay leaf
  • 1 litre of good quality vegetable stock
  • 100g frozen peas
  • 50ml milk
  • 3 teaspoons of corn flour

Method

  • Add the oil to a pan followed by the onion, carrot and celery and allow to sweat down for 5 minutes before adding the garlic and cooking for another minute.
  • Next add the potatoes, parsnips, thyme and stock. Stir well and add the bay leaf then season well. Bring to the boil and reduce to a shimmer.
  • Keep this rolling until the potatoes are soft, this should take around 15 minutes. Have a taste and more seasoning if required then add the peas.
  • Mix the milk and corn flour separately before pouring in the soup. Bring the whole thing to the boil again stirring constantly.
  • You should now have a thick and creamy soup. Serve right away with bread and butter.
