I don’t make as much soup from scratch as I used to.  So this evening I thought I would make a hearty vegetable soup.


I used a number of fresh vegetables which I had in the fridge and then added frozen chilli, spinach, onions and okra.


I added tomato puree, garlic puree, turmeric, black pepper, vegetable stock.


I put some passata and water into the pot.  Usually when I make soup I sauté the vegetables but I didn’t this time, I boiled them.  I turned the heat down and kept stirring every so often.



I wanted to add a tin of beans and settled for butter beans.  Before adding the beans I blended the vegetables.

Here’s is the finished soup


I served it with a toasted bagel.
