Lucky's Vegetable Soup


With winter here, nothing beats a bowl of hot soup and home made is the way to go. This recipe I grew up on and it's a favorite in our house as well.


This is how I make the vegie soup.



I use a piece of lamb meat when making the stock. Usually when I buy a side of lamb those scrap pieces of meat are divided up and frozen.

So firstly the meat is boiled in water with a bit of salt added. When cooked, meat is removed and this is fed to the poultry for protein.

Into the lamb stock goes grated vegies......

potato
swede
parsnip
turnip
carrot

Added as well is

diced onion
diced celery

Bring it to the boil and simmer for 20 mins.

Add a cup off small noodles (or what variety you like).

1 packet of chicken noodle soup. This gives the soup a kick.

Great with crusty bread.

I grew up with this soup too! The only difference was my Mum put in a can of tomatoes and barley instead of the noodles. I must make a pot soon!

I think with this sort of soup, changes can be made and it still tastes great.
