This is what you do ...
I chose things growing in the garden - leeks, carrots, tomatoes, courgettes, chives and oregano, plus a couple of old potatoes found in a sack in the garage.
Chopping by hand is very therapeutic. I must add that to my 'gym' list.
|Add a slosh of secret ingredients|
I also added 3 stock cubes. Boil it all up until it's mushy and then whizz it and eat it. Three '2 portion' lots went in the freezer and 3 portions eaten today. It was quite a thick soup so each batch could be doubled with added ingredients 'bunged in' at the reheating stage.
