Vegetable Soup

You know, there are some days when you just can't be bothered. Today was one of them.

seems to have got a 'bug' and I think I'm 'sickening' for it so neither of us were very eatified. With the girls out at Alton Towers which is open 'till 9 o'clock tonight, we just fancied something simple and decided on soup and an omelet.

Now I'm not going to do a detailed recipe for a vegetable soup, it ain't rocket science after all, you can make it as easy or as hard as you like

I couldn't be bothered to 'sweat' the veg in oil before adding the liquid so consoled myself that not doing this must be more healthy! I chopped the veg I had to hand, a potato, parsnip, carrot, a couple of leeks, 3 tomatoes, and about 3 pieces of celery - the tender middle bits. I boiled these in some water with salt and pepper and after about 10 minutes added some small cauliflower florets, a sieved can of chopped tomatoes and a glug of light soy sauce. 5 or 6 minutes later I thickened it with potato flour. Job done.

Not exactly the classic way, but nice all the same. The croutons were just a couple of left over soft rolls, cut up and mixed with some oil and chopped garlic. They went into the oven for about 15 minutes as today's bread was cooking.
