Vegetable Soup

I know that soup is more of a winter dish, but for me it's always a good call. This is a old recipe that I have been doing for years and although simple is very tasty. One tip on making soup, if you stir the vegetables for about 15 minutes while adding the ingredients your soup will be ready a lot quicker. I hope you like this one.

1/2 onions chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
400g courgettes sliced
150g carrots sliced
20g flat leaf parsley
1 vegetable cube
10 baby plum tomatoes
Black pepper

1 - Fry the onion on the olive oil until tender
2 - Add the courgettes and stir for about 5 minutes
3 - Add the carrots, parsley, vegetable cube and black pepper and stir from time to time for another 15 minutes
4 - When the vegetables are soft, cover with boiling water and leave it for 15 minutes. The amount of water will depend on how watery you want your soup to be
5 - Transfer the vegetables with the remaining water to a blender and add the tomatoes
6 - Mix until all the ingredients are blended together

Serve while hot. Enjoy!!
