Homemade Veggie Soup - 1 ProPoint

This is a delicious veggie soup that is super filling and tasty. It is one ProPoint, but definitely worth it!


1 150g Potato, peeled and diced
4 Carrots, peeled and diced
4 Celery Sticks, diced
1 Leek, diced
1 Large Onion
1 Vegetable Stock Cube (or chicken stock if you prefer)
1 Litre Water
1 Tsp Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

1 Large heavy bottomed lidded pot


  1. Heat the oil in the pan on a low - medium heat.
  2. Add the onion, leek and celery to the oil and cook, covered, on a low heat until the onions are translucent but not coloured.
  3. Add the carrots, potatoes and stock, cover and bring to a gentle boil until the veg is cooked (you should be able to crush the veg to the side of the pot).
  4. Blitz in the blender until smooth.
  5. Pass the soup through a sieve. (This is optional. It's a little bit time consuming but worth doing as it gives the soup a lovely silky texture). If you choose not to do this and the soup is too thick add some more water to reach the consistency you like.
  6. Adjust the seasoning to your liking.
