My husband calls this "small soup" to distinguish it from his "big soup", which he makes in much larger quantities in a bigger pan. "Small soup" is a very simple vegetable soup that can be made with minimum cost and effort.

Vegetable soup, bowl, soup, bread

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1-2 hours
Makes: 6 servings

2 small onions or 1 large onion
2 small leeks or 1 large leek
3 medium potatoes
1 litre of stock
Grinding of pepper to taste

Unlike many soups, where you would soften the onion first, this soup simply adds all the vegetables in at once. It's a handy time saver.
First, chop the onion and leek.

Vegetable soup, bowl, soup, bread

Peel the potatoes and chop into small chunks. As long as you have washed them thoroughly you don't need to be too fussy about peeling them completely. A little bit of skin adds to the rustic, homespun charm of the final soup. It also adds some extra flavour.

Put all the vegetables in a saucepan and then add a litre of vegetable stock. Add a good grinding of pepper - we like a lot in our soup, but vary according to taste.

Vegetable soup, bowl, soup, bread

Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat and simmer, with a lid on, for 1-2 hours. The vegetables will be ready to eat after an hour, but leaving it for the extra hour will break the vegetables down further and add more flavour to the liquid.

Leek and potato soup

Serve with wholemeal bread. This soup is also delicious reheated, it develops the flavour a bit more as it further breaks down the vegetables.
