  • 1 litre hot vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 100g Chantenay or baby carrots, trimmed and halved lengthways
  • 1 stick celery, finely sliced
  • 4 baby leeks, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely sliced
  • 250g baby new potatoes, quartered
  • 100g fresh or frozen peas
  • 3-4 heads baby pak choi or spring greens
  • About 12 mint leaves


  • To make your vegetable soup bring the stock to the boil in a large pan. Add the onion, carrots, celery, leeks and garlic. Return to the boil, then add the potatoes. Simmer for 12-15 mins, until just tender.

  • Add the peas, then put the pak choi on top, so it’s just below the level of the stock, and simmer for another 5 mins.

  • Spoon into warm bowls and garnish with the mint, roughly chopped.
