Picture of How to Make a Simple Soup

Soup and toast. It's as simple as you can get but soup is so delicious and when you have it with buttered toast made from Sourdough Bread then it's even better.

Today we'll make a lovely soup - let's start.

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 3 potatos
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 1 leek
  • splash of olive oil to cook in
  • handful of pumpkin pieces
  • handful of capsicum
  • 1 tbsp crushed garlic
  • 20 or so pepper corns (to your own preference)
  • 500 mls Beef Stock
  • 200 mls white wine (we've used our Apple core wine)
  • herbs (we've used Italian herbs)
  • salt to taste

We had some left over meat and vegetables from our Beef Stock so we'll add that too.

Step 2: Prepare Your Veggies, Reggie

This is a hearty, flavorsome soup that is best served hot. Fantastic as a starter before the main meal, or enjoy it for lunch with toast soldiers.

I hope you enjoy this soup.
