Linda's Vegetable Soup Recipe

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and saute the onion, leeks, celery, and garlic 5 mins.

Step 2

Add the carrots, cabbage and potatoes and stir well. Add the herbe. Cover with vegetable stock and simmer, with the lid on, for about 1 hour. Stir occasionally, and add more liquid if necessary.

Step 3

If you're using fresh tomatoes, sit them on top of the veggies for a minute or two, until their skins peel away easily. Then stir the skinned tomatoes into the soup. If using canned, add to the soup and stir well.

Step 4

Season with salt and pepper and serve.
