I make what I call End of the Week soup...so it uses up all the veg I haven't used in the week. I guess its a bit like Minestrone but I don't put pasta or beans in (but you could )
In a big pot - fry up couple rashers bacon, add onion and plenty of garlic. Saute diced carrot, celery and whatever hardish veg you have. Throw in a couple tins of tomato, couple tins of water and a couple stock cubes. Bring to boil - add whatever other veg you have - usually zucchini, cabbage, capsicum, cauli, beans, peas etc. If I have basil in the garden I chuck some in. Cook till all soft. Sometimes I leave it chunky, otherwise I blend with a stick blender.
So easy, and an awesome way to use the sad veges left in the fridge!

So many soups for me to try! Yum!
I make a really yum pumpkin one, sorry about the huge quantities but I have a massive pot and this freezes so well.
5 kilos jap/kent pumpkin chopped into wedges with skin on.
2 kilos sweet potato unpeeled
4 brown onions unpeeled
2 whole heads of garlic unpeeled
6 Granny Smith apples peeled and cored.
bake all of this with a good splash of olive oil and approx half a tsp each of cinnamon and nutmeg until soft.
when cooked, peel and dump into a huge pot with 4 litres of chicken or veg stock. Bring to boil and then simmer for 20 mins. Blitz with stick blender, stir in 100 mls thick cream. Serve hot with bread.. So yum!

I made a yummy crab and sweet corn soup last night:
2 raw blue swimmer crabs
4 fresh corn - cut off kernels
Teaspoon grated ginger
Teaspoon grated garlic
white parts of 4 shallots finely diced
green parts of 4 shallots finely diced
1/3 cup shao sing wine ( Chinese cooking wine)
2 litres of stock - I used 1 litre of crab stock and 1 litre vegetable stock
Tablespoon of corn flour mixed with water to thicken
2 egg whites
Sautée white shallot , ginger and garlic in large pan for a few minutes until soft, add wine and cook another few minutes , add all the stock and bring to boil then poach the crabs until cooked ( about ten mins) take out the crab , cool and then pick out all the flesh and set aside , add the fresh corn and all but a handful of green shallots and cook for 30 mins, season to taste, put the crab back in , add the corn flour and whisk in egg whites so they form thin ribbons , sprinkle the rest of the green shallots and serve!

Yep - DH also prefers chicken ! Just use chicken stock and I poach a whole chicken breast - takes about 10 mins depending on the size, then just shred and add back in later

I make a really nice and simple pumpkin soup:
1 large butternut pumpkin or 2 if they're small
5 or 6 carrots
1 large sweet potato
(You can add other vegetables to increase the nutrients but I try to stick to root vegetables and simplicity)
Put all veggies in a large pot and bring to the boil using 1litre of vegetable stock, chicken is also nice, the liquid might not seem enough but once it starts cooking all the veggies break down. Once the vegetables are extremely soft either mash or use a stick blender to make it look like soup lol if it seems to thick, boil some water and add littles bits at a time to get the perfect consistency. Before serving add 300ml of cream and serve.

I'm hopeless at cooking but have a fail proof easy pumpkin soup recipe I use.
2 Butternut pumpkins
1 1/2 cups of vege stock
Just dice the pumpkin and onion, put in slow cooker with stock for 4 hours on high, 8 on low. When finished , purée and add some cream through it. Salt and pepper to taste
It's not fancy, but it tastes fine and is quick and easy .
