Mixed Veg Soup with Garlic and Sage


about 2 kg mixed frozen vegetables: garden peas, green beans, broccoli, carrots, chopped celery stalks
1½-2 litres of boiling water
4 vegetable cubes (10g each)
1 tbs dried sage
2 tsp garlic granules
1 cup double cream
balsamic vinegar to taste – optional


Cook vegetables, water and cubes in a large pot and cook covered till vegetables are soft.
Add sage and garlic, cook some more.

Serve with fresh bread on a side.

* I usually chop and freeze all unwanted vegetables to use later for the soup.

  2. Margot, I love veggi soups, specially this, so delicious!!! Gloria

  3. this is the best way to make veggie soups ever. i use it all the time for broccoli, and just did one the other week withcauliflower and parsnips. and if you use roots veggies, you can even cut back on the cream and still end up with a smooth texture!

    this soup is just a lovely shade of green.

  4. Margot that is such a hearty soup. Yumm with some crusty bread :)

  5. such a healthy soup, margot!!
