This is a real winter warming soup and it feels hearty and filling.
You will need:
1 large onion finely chopped,
1 clove garlic finely chopped,
1kg (2.2lb) of root vegetables (carrots, parsnips, swede, potatoes, beetroot, turnips etc) chopped into 1 inch cubes,
Olive oil for cooking (approximately 2 tablespoons),
1.5 pints of vegetable stock (home-made or from a sugar free stock cube).
What you do with all this:
Heat the olive oil in a large pan.
Fry the onion and garlic lightly until the onion becomes transparent.
Add all the vegetables and give them a good stir.
Add the vegetable stock and bring everything to the boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer lightly for about 30 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.
Turn off the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Leave chunky, or use a hand held blender to blend the mixture until smooth.
Add a dash of Tabasco if you like your soup with a bite or freshly ground pepper
