Winter Vegetable Soup

Vegan. Serves 6 - 8

Feel free to change the mixture of vegetables in this soup just keep the quantities roughly the same. This mixture worked for me but you could use a single vegetable such as pumpkin or add vegetables such as parsnip or sweet potato. You could add some tahini or other nut butter to make a richer soup.

This soup freezes well.


  • 2 onions chopped
  • 2 sticks celery sliced
  • 2 potatoes
  • 3 large or 4 small carrots
  • 250g butternut pumpkin (butternut squash)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 4 cups water
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • tamari (soy sauce), miso or salt to taste
  • chopped chives for garnish (optional)


  1. Add all of the ingredients except for the tamari and chives to to a large pot and bring to the boil
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are quite soft
  3. Allow to cool a little then puree in a blender in batches until smooth
  4. Return to the heat and stir in the pepper and tamari (if using miso then whisk in until smooth or add in at the pureeing stage)
  5. Serve sprinkled with chopped chives
