I made this soup out of everything I had in the fridge and cupboard, it turned out so well, it became a big hit with my wife, my little girl and family. We've made it several times since and its just so lovely and perfect for a cold evening especially with homemade warm loaf.
I used a masher rather than blender, you want it to still resemble lumpy vegetables but not smooth and not like soup you get from supermarket. Cooking times might seem high but I believe the longer it's cooked, the thicker it is and more tasty it becomes. I haven't added salt as stock cubes have plenty of salt in them already.
