R's vegetable soup
Remember how I was craving 'winter food'? Turns out R had the same idea, so when he suggested making vegetable soup for dinner tonight I was 200% on board. We popped into the veg shop on our way home - we'd never been before and were completely blown away by how inexpensive everything was. All the ingredients for this soup cost us just over £2!! So, so good. We'll definitely be making that a part of our routine! It's nice to support independent local businesses as well, especially when they help us save money on our food bill!
R served it with cheese on toast - I've never eaten soup with cheese on toast before, but it was absolutely gorgeous. A new favourite combination. We'll probably we eating it for the next few days - but I really, really don't mind. Soup is definitely going to be made a bit more often in this house!
For those of you who are interested - R just chopped all the veg & put it in a saucepan with the stock. He left it on for about 1/2 - 3/4 of an hour & then blended it. We would have added herbs... but we didn't have any!
3 cloves of garlic
3 stock cubes
Salt & pepper to taste
Do you have a favourite soup recipe? I'd LOVE to try it out, please share!!
