Vegetable Soup


Hearty Vegetable Soup

I love Vegetable soup and I do not really have a recipe as such I use whatever vegetables are in season and lots of them. I avoid broccoli as I do not like the texture it gives the finished soup.   I usually make soup in exceptionally large batches and freeze in containers for two.  My daughter joins in the soup making and makes some for her house so we use a large pot.  I get containers from Amazon.

For this Batch I used several different vegetables and I get several servings. 


  • 4 carrots
  • 2 parsnips
  • 2 medium yellow turnip (ruttabago)
  • Bok Choi 1 head
  • 4 sticks Celery
  • 2 yellow Squash or any squash
  • Red and Green pepper
  • 2 courgettes
  • 1 large sliced onion
  • 4 potatoes
  • 3 liters of organic vegetable stock
  • 2 Ozs of butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon of turmeric to enhance the rich yellow color

My blog is based on two of my greatest passions next to my family, cooking and travelling.  I have always wanted to share all the recipes I have developed over the years and tales of my worldwide travels.  I have never had the time until the lockdown2020.  I am making the most of the imposed quarantine and loving it. Not the quarantine the blogging.    I am a home cook not a professional so all my recipes were made in my own kitchen for my family.  I hope you enjoy!
