Sometimes I’m shocked because so many people (especially students) don’t eat/make soup, even though it’s so easy, delicious and cheap. The great thing about soup is, that you can put whatever you want in it. You don’t like potatoes or carrots? Choose other ingredients.

For my soups I developed a little routine. I always use onions, celeriac and vegetable stock as base ingredients because they give a distinctive taste that reminds me of my grandma’s soups. Just chop your choice of vegetables (I like to fry the onions with the celeriac first), put them all in a pan, pour a suitable amount of vegetable stock over it and let it simmer until the veg is cooked. Season with salt, pepper and maybe some soy sauce. You really don’t have to be an experienced cook for this at all. Just be brave and try what you like.

By the way, we get a vegetable box delivered to our door each week which is a wonderful opportunity to get a local selection of fresh vegetables. (For a veg box in Lincolnshire check here).
