Madhouse recipe : Warming Veggie Soup

Hearty warming soup packed with healthy vegetables and topped off with earthy Middle Eastern spices - a hug in a bowl ! The first time Madhouse Daddy made his delicious veggie soup, I asked for his recipe and was stunned to see how simple it is. You can just mix up the recipe to suit whatever's in your fridge too.

Warming Veggie Soup 

ingredients :

2 potatoes
2 carrots
1 leek
1 onion
2 tomatoes
3 mushrooms
1 stock cube or stock pot
salt pepper
to serve : black onion seeds, berberé or ras el hanout spices (or similar : coriander,cumin, smoked paprika, ginger ...)

Put all the roughly chopped veggies in a large pot and cover with boiling water. Add salt and the stock cube/stock pot and boil for 10-15 minutes until the veggies are soft. Use a stick blender to liquidise it all. Add extra water if it's too thick. You could add cream for a more luxurious texture. Serve into bowls and sprinkle black onion seeds and mild spices on top. Serve with a hunk of crusty bread.
