Mixed Vegetable Soup Recipe

To continue the soup-based success I have had on this blog; this weekend I made a Mixed Vegetable Soup. The ingredients basically consisting of the weeks leftover vegetables; it is a great way to use anything leftover in the fridge for Saturday lunch before you go shopping for a new week of food. Here is the recipe which is as always low calorie and really simple to make:


  • 1 tbsp of Oil
  • 1 Chopped Onion
  • 1 tsp of Paprika
  • 1 tsp of Coarsely Ground Pepper
  • 2 Chopped Cloves of Garlic
  • 500g of Mixed Vegetables
  • 500ml of Vegetable Stock
Mixed Vegetable Soup Simmering Away


  1. Melt the butter in a large pan
  2. Add the onion, paprika, pepper and garlic
  3. Fry for 3-4 minutes until softened and beginning to brown
  4. Add the the vegetable and fry for a further 2 minutes
  5. Pour in the vegetable stock and bring to the boil
  6. Once boiling turn down the heat and allow to simmer for 30 minutes or until all of the ingredients are soft
  7. Blend until smooth
  8. Pour into a clean pan and reheat

Serving Suggestions

As always serve with freshly baked crusty bread

The thing I love about this recipe is its frugality, in honesty a few months ago I would have probably thrown these ‘old’ vegetables away at the end of the week instead of making good use of them. This recipe however, definitely makes good use of them as this Mixed Vegetable Soup was truly delicious and ever so slightly spicy. It also took less than 45 minutes to make, the perfect solution for a Saturday morning!
