Creamy Veg Soup - Jardiniere - !very easy-peasy!

All vegetables roughly chopped and peeled

1 large or 2 medium sized carrots
1 onion
1 medium sized potato
couple cloves of garlic chopped
2 - 3 sticks of celery
Can also add 1 tomato - roughly chopped & dont need to peel
Sprinkle of good olive oil
Chicken or Veg. stock (plus little milk or cream if wanted),

The mix of veg. isn't really crucial but more carrots add sweetness to the soup, and too many onions could be overpowering. This is a really easy and tasty soup.

1. Roughly chop all veg and place in saucepan with stock, a little olive oil (again if wanted - though you can add this at the end instead) and your stock - enough to well cover the veg.

2.Bring to the boil and simmer until veggies are well cooked through and soft.

3. Cook then liquidise. Adjust seasoning and add more stock or milk as required until you have a lovely creamy consistency.
