Left over vegetable soup recipe

If you’re an over-buyer like me then the chances are you regularly have spare vegetables getting old in your fridge! In that case this vegetable soup recipe is the perfect one for you. I’ve listed exactly what we put into this particular vegetable soup recipe so you can recreate it if you want to. But equally you can start with the same base and throw in whatever vegetables and herbs you like – it will work just fine.

I use a Le Creuset pan for cooking soups (and our easy chilli recipe).
