Bite size soup

It’s soup season again and this provides an easy way to use up the leftover vegetables in your fridge.  With lots of sniffles and sneezes to be heard, the warmth of soup works wonders.  Add some spice and you’ll feel even better.  This soup was made with standard ingredients found in my cupboard and freezer, as well as a random leftover stalk of broccoli and a remaining lonely spring onion.  It’s packed full of vegetables, about 2.5 serves per serve in fact!  Make a soup with your leftover vegetables and help keep those sniffles at bay.
