Vegetable Soup

This is a lovely filling soup, you can see the vegetables in the soup rather than them being blended up. Its one of our favourite soups to make, it fairly easy to make and tastes great. Its great for lunch or dinner and it stores well in the fridge if you want to eat it over a few days. We tend to have this soup with an oven baked roll or toast.
