How to make soup
Soup is pretty simple to make. All you have to do is decide what you want to add to it - be it vegetables or meat. Cut your chosen ingredients into similar sized chunks. In a large pan on the hob begin to boil your vegetables and meat in twice the amount of water. Add a stock cube to bulk-up the soup. You can add cream to thicken your soup too.
Once it reaches the boil, turn down the heat and simmer. When your ingredients are soft and cooked, leave your soup to cool off of the hob so it's not piping hot and pour into a food processor and blitz. Once you've blitzed your soup pour into a bowl and serve - ta-dah you've got soup!
Soup is a great way of using up leftovers. If you've got leftover meat and veg from your Sunday roast you don't have to bin them but can whip up into a tasty soup for lunch the next day instead. It doesn't take much to make soup - some stock, veggies or meat and that's about it.
Don't worry if you haven't got a food processor to mix all your ingredients together - you can make a chunky soup and cut all the ingredients by hand or use a masher instead.
How to store soup
If you've made a large batch of soup it's best to portion it before you store it - that's if you're not planning on eating it all at once! Store in Tupperware boxes or airtight liquid bags and label.
Soup can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Leave in the fridge overnight to defrost and make sure your soup is piping hot before serving.
