Method

This potato and vegetable soup recipe is perfect for the winter months. In fact, it’s a great way of using spare leftovers which are usually readily available around Christmas time. We’ve split this recipe into two methods, one for the pans and one for the microwave. Follow the easy method below for fantastic results!

This soup is a great way of using up all those left-over vegetables and once made can be frozen for another day. Begin by gently frying the onion for a few minutes in the olive oil, then add the garlic, thyme and potato, fry for a further minute before adding the left-over vegetables and stock. Bring to a gentle simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Blend the soup until smooth, pop back on the heat, add the flageolet beans and chopped chives, season with salt and milled pepper, simmer for 5 minutes and serve with warm crusty bread and softened butter.

Microwavable method

Take a large microwavable bowl add the olive oil, potato, garlic and 200ml of the stock and cook for 5 minutes. Now add the leftover vegetables, another 200ml of the stock and cook for a further 8-10 minutes. Carefully tip into as liquidizer and add the rest of the stock, blend until smooth. Pour back into the bowl, add the flageolet beans and season with salt and milled pepper, warm back up through the microwave and serve with chopped fresh chives a warm crusty bread.
