This is my own little creation. It makes loads so you can make it and freeze. This will warm the cockles. Perfect if you are suffering with a cold and just need a bit of a boast. 


2 leeks, chopped

2 carrots, chopped

1 large potato, diced

2 medium sized onions, chopped

200g soup mix

1 bouquet garni

1 litre of boiling water

50 ml of liquid chicken stock

2 bay leaves

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt and pepper to season


  1. Heat a large saucepan; add the olive oil and heat.
  2. Fry off the leeks, onions, potato, and carrots for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the bay leaves.
  4. Reduce the lid and cover with a lid. Saute the vegetables for 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in the soup mix. Add the bouquet garni, salt and pepper.
  6. Pour in the liquid stock and the water.
  7. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat.
  8. Simmer for 45 minutes. Adding more water if it has reduced too far.


Sprinkle with some chopped parsley and serve with some nice home made brown bread.
