Can't beat growing your own soup. Simple, extremely fresh and a great way to use extra produce!
I would love to grow everything, however onions don't seem to grow from seed for me Sad

Ingredients.
1 tablespoon of oil.
2 potatoes.
2 carrots.
1 parsnip.
1 leek.
1 onion.
1 stick of celery.
1 litre of vegetable stock.

Method.

Chop all the vegetables and put into bowls to use later.

Add the oil to a big pot, put on a high heat. Throw in the onion and leek and stir-fry for 2 minutes.

reduce the heat and add in the potatoes. Pop the lid on and leave for around 5 minutes, stirring every minute or so.

Pour in the vegetable stock and add the rest of the vegetables. Bring to the boil and then reduce to simmer.

Check the soup every few minutes. After around 30 - 40 minutes season with salt and pepper and take off the heat.

Allow to cool for a bit and then blend until you get a nice smooth consistency.

Depending on your own preferance, you can reduce or extend simmering times to give a thinner or thicker soup.
