    My grandma used to make this thick vegetable soup that is full of healthy vegetables and tastes great, especially on cold winter evenings with warm bread.

    2. Spoon the vegetables and a ladle's worth of cooking liquid into a blender or food processor and puree. When the mixture is totally smooth, spoon it back into the remaining cooking liquid in the saucepan and gently stir until it is mixed nicely.

    Altered ingredient amounts. ***cooking time is going to reduce the portion sizes, as the veg absorb the liquid- this will make a very thick soup- which will resemble baby get more portions from the same amount, cook only for 20-30 mins on simmer- after allowing it to boil first...check with a fork- if the potatoes are reaching 'soft'- but not quite soft enough to mash- then you stop cooking it, allow 5 mins for it to cool slightly, and then as per main instructions- transfer to your food processor, use the knife blade, and follow instructions for puree, make sure you add 3 ladels of the liquid to the drained veg, and whatever you do- DO NOT throw away the remainder of the liquid!. Transfer the pureed veg to the rest of the liquid, stir- and you will still have a thick soup, but alot more of it!  -  09 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Hi. From the ingredients the recipe sounds nice, but as the instructions are just in one big paragraph, this makes reading them somewhat difficult. My advice is to number each step separately.  -  01 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
