Step 1: What you need

So first thing what you will need is a kitchen with all the equipment(all the pots cookers knives...). Than (best fresh) ingredients :
4 carrots ,
2 root parsley ,
4 tomatoes ,
1 root celery ,
5 sprouts (small cabbage) ,
1 scallion (leak) ,
2 onoins,
about 8-10 potatoes ,
broccoli (calabresse),
and some pork meat .
And of course extra virgin olive-oil.

This this is realy big portion. You can actualy get to this soup any vegetables but these will be the best :-)

Step 2: Prepare the working place

First  Sharp knive will be useful in cutting than you need knife board and some bowl where you can put cutted vegetables. Than prepare two pots. One bigger and the second one smaller.

Step 3: Olive-oil and onion

Pour the olive-oil aground to the bigger pot (cooker) and add the cutted onion.( continue with step 5 slicing and cutting i ll tell you what to do with  the onion in a little bit)

Step 4: Tomatoes

Fill the smaller cooker with water , boil the water and add the tomatoes. After minute turn the light off, pour the water off and cool the tomatoes with cold water. This is awesome trick to comfortable peel the coat of tomatoes. (i think you will use it in most of cook recipes). Now remove the  skin  of tomatoes.

Step 5: Slicing and cutting

 Before you 'll cut vegetables wash them, clean them and grate and shave all the carrot ,root parsley ...... . After that cut them to small pieces with knife. Place them to the bowl .

Step 6: Light the fire

One step back to onion.... Light the fire beneath the cooker with the olive-oil and cutted onion. After few minutes, when the onion will be getting brown/pink , add all the cutted vegetables. ! Do it fast to not burn it all ! 
Sauté (stir-fry) all the vegetables for few 1-2-3 minutes , don't burn it, when you see it s done  you will add the water. Fill the cooker with normal water. ! CONSTANTLY STIR WITH THE SPOON !

Step 7: Cooking

Now when you got boiling vegetables in water you will add some spices to it. I prefer dried mushrooms. Put to your  soup the cutted potatoes.Than add the meat. Every 15-20 minutes you will have to add some water (it is vapouring). Cook it for about 1.30 - 2 hours.

Step 8: Roux

Its simple . Just put butter to pan. light the fire. add the flour and its done. You make this to have your soup denser and it gives the great taste to. After the butter will split just ad the flour to make a paste.Still stir with the spoon . Than add it to the soup.

Step 9: Finishing

Just take out the meat which is now brewed and cut it to small pieces for good eating. Than add tham back to the soup.

Step 10: Serving up
