Christmas Vegetable Soup
Thick, rich, satisfying Christmas Vegetable Soup is made with Christmas dinner leftovers.
Leftover; vegetable soup
stock from the turkey
, ready-made, or use bouillon powder or cube
Leftover cooked vegetables from Christmas Day
e.g. carrots, parsnips, potatoes, sprouts, beans
e.g. gravy, bread sauce
Food processor or blender
Put the stock and vegetables in a large saucepan and heat on a high heat until they boil. Cook for 5 minutes
Take the pan off the heat and process the contents
EITHER in a processor OR In the pan with a stick blender
Return to the pan and reheat
You may need to add some hot water if your stock is very rich or there isn't enough for all your vegetables. I dilute 1 litre of homemade turkey stock with about 1/2 litre water
Add salt to taste. Add a good teaspoon then taste. Add more if necessary. I would add 2-3 teaspoons
To serve, grind some pepper over and a teaspoon of cream swirled in if you have it.
This soup freezes well. If it's too thick, add water when you reheat.
