Leftover Vegetable Soup

Leftover vegetable soup

The best thing about leftover vegetable soup is that you can pretty much chuck whatever you have lying around into it, even frozen veg can go in. Below is an example of a soup i made this week, i always add a bit of garlic into a soup plus mixed herbs. Because of the boys I don’t add salt to my cooking but of course you can if you prefer!
1 large potato
1 carrot
1 parsnip
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 stick of celery
a few florets of broccoli
500ml veg stock
Mixed herbs
red lentils
Peel and chop your leftover veg. Add to the slow cooker along with your stock, lentils and herbs. Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3 hours until the veg is cooked. Blend to your desired consistency and serve! We had this soup with some savoury muffins I had made and frozen.
