Anything Goes Vegetable Soup

People have been making soup for thousands of years, without a recipe. Soup is a great way to use up leftover vegetables, cooked or raw. Even those forgotten vegetables in your fridge that are past their best can still be used up in a soup. Each one will taste different and if your soup needs a little extra something, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall suggests adding a few teaspoons of curry powder. Store the soup in the fridge for 2 - 3 days or freeze it. It tastes fantastic, is packed with goodness and saves you money!
