This is such an easy soup to make and is perfect for the cold weather. It really is a meal in a bowl. You can throw in whatever vegetables you have at home and even add some cooked shredded chicken for added bulk.
Heat the coconut oil/butter in large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over a medium heat. Once hot, add the onions, leeks, potatoes, garlic and a pinch of salt. Fry for two mins then cover and sweat until they begin to soften (about 8 mins). Add the stock, carrots & parsnip and bring to a simmer. Once simmering add the tomato & broccoli. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 20 mins or until the vegetables are tender until the vegetables are tender when you insert a fork. Season with a little salt and pepper to taste and then either serve as a chunky vegetable broth or blitz with a hand blender.
And that's it... so simple. I make a big batch and freeze it in individual portions. It is so easy to just pop it in a saucepan and defrost.
