Using-up-vegetables soup

I’m good for nothing today, hungover and in need of a holiday. Plus my fridge has a gazillion vegetables in it, which I wasn’t sure what to do with.

All of these problems were cured by sweating most of said vegetables in a saucepan with a bit of butter for about 10 mins, adding a load of water and simmering away for another 20 mins and then blitzing it all with one of those hand held blitzer thingies. And before you know it – beautiful soup.

It’s a good idea to include sweet potatoes / squash / carrots in the veg mix, otherwise it turns out looking like green sludge, but otherwise you can’t go wrong.
