Easy Veg Soup recipe

This can be adapted to use any vegetables that you have in – or even a bag of frozen vegetables. Serve this soup with some garlicky croutons for a super easy dinner.


  • 250g vegetables of your choice
  • 300g potatoes – new or old
  • 750ml chicken stock
  • Handful of fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Roughly chop all of the vegetables so that they're around the same size, including the potatoes.

  2. Heat a bit of olive oil in a pan and fry the vegetables for five minutes or so, until they begin to colour and soften. Season well.

  3. Add the stock and bring the mixture to a simmer.

  4. Cook for fifteen minutes and then blend until smooth.

  5. Serve the soup by chopping the parsley and scattering it over the top.

Used frozen bag of mixed veg, a clove of garlick and a dash of worcester sauce, plus a little mixed herbs, wonderful.

This straightforward recipe was just what I was looking for and, amazingly, couldn't find in most cookery books. I used potato, carrots, a smallish onion and frozen peas. Lovely!
