I can't get enough of this soup, so you will nearly always find it on one of my menus. It's so simple to make and is ready in an hour (Don't roast the veg, just add to the water and boil instead and it's ready in half an hour). Why would anyone ever make a packet soup again after learning just how easy it is to make your own. I love this with Hot Honey and Rosemary Soda Bread (see my recipe on this website) thats fresh from the oven dripping with Country butter. Yum!!!
Melt 100g butter on a low heat in a pot. Add 100g plain flour and cook out till the mix is smooth and the flour is cooked, stirring all the time. Remove from the heat, You can store this for up to 1 week in a container in the fridge. It can be used to thicken stews, sauces or soups.
