    You can make veggie soup with any surplus or left over veg ( carrots, onions, celery, swede, cabbage etc. ) and a veg or chicken stock cube. A trick i have is to add a sachet of cup-a-soup, vegetable flavour. It is not cheating! The ingredients are mainly thickener and flavouring . Also it is worth buying a cheap stick blender if you make soup often. I got one from morrisons for £8 and it is excellent.

    Winter is coming it's time to eat well. So here are some simple healthy affordable soup, and for those of us caring for the elderly you can cut down on time by preparing the night before of buying pumpkin/squash or carrots all ready peeled & cut
