Hearty Green Soup recipe

So called green soup because it's full of tasty green veg. Garnish it with truffle oil and chives for special occasions, and with a little dollop of crème fraiche if you're serving it for lunch.


  • 3 onions
  • 6 leeks
  • 6 celery sticks
  • 1 turnip
  • 100g fresh tarragon
  • Salt and pepper
  • 750ml vegetable stock


  1. Peel the turnip and dice it.

  2. Finely chop the onions, leeks and celery sticks. Finely chop the tarragon.

  3. Bring the vegetable stock to a simmer and add the diced turnip. Simmer it for ten minutes, and then add the leek, celery and onion.

  4. Simmer the mixture for a further 15 minutes or so and then add the tarragon and a healthy pinch of seasoning.

  5. Blend the soup in a food processor until smooth and silky.
