Although this is a hearty soup, laden with vegetables, it has a delicate flavour. Home-made stock is best, but you can use a good-quality bought stock (chilled or from a cube or powder); if using a cube or powder, do not add additional salt at the beginning of cooking as you may find these products provide enough salty seasoning.
