The Auld Yin’s Homemade Vegetable Soup

veg soup

This soup is always best served a day old, I make a big pot that does 3 days and it’s still yummy on Day 3. (approx 150 calories a bowl)

1 x packet Great Scot Vegetable Broth (500g) I used 250g which gave me 10 bowls (soak for at least 8-12 hours)

4 x carrotts – grated

1 x leek – chopped finely

1 x turnip – grated

small bitesize chunks of potato (choose potatoes suitable for boiling) amount as per your liking. (I used 6 small boiling potatoes)

3 x vegetable stock cubes

3 litres water

Salt and pepper to season

 

1. Fill up a large soup pot with the water

2. Pour in the pre – soaked broth lentils and put in vegetable stock cubes (no need to dissolve before, put them in whole)

3. Bring to the boil, while waiting for water to boil, put in the grated carrott, turnip and leeks and mix through

4. Season with salt & pepper

5. Once boiled reduce heat to a simmer for 40 minutes.

6. Serve with some yummy bread.
