1 medium onion
3 celery stalks
2 large carrots
1 red pepper
2-4 medium potatoes
1 carton of vegetable stock (~1 litre)
0.5 carton of chicken stock (~2 cups)
2 cups water
whatever herbs you want your soup to taste like. (I used thyme mostly, with some rosemary and sage)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Chop onion into small pieces and fry in large soup pot with some vegetable oil until translucent and soft.
2. Add chopped celery to soften before adding other ingredients, adding a good sprinkling of salt now can help.
3. Add all the other chopped up vegetables now: carrots, pepper, and potatoes. Feel free to add in anything else you think will be nice. This is also the time to add your stocks and water. You can also add your seasonings now. I probably used a tablespoon or so total, but use more or less to your taste.
4. Simmer until the flavours are blended, and you have soup!
