Vegetable Soup

Woke up this morning to frost everywhere and even some ice in places, really cold winter weather which mean - soup. It was decided - take out the slow cooker and make some chicken and vegetable soup, let it slow cook for four hours and done, no fuss. This makes about 2 litres of soup.

1 Leek
2 Chicken Fillets
1 Carrot
Salt and Pepper
1 Celery
1/2 Turnip
1 Litre of Chicken Stock (Homemade)

  1. Heat the slow cooker on high for 30 minutes.
  2. Add 10 g of butter and 15ml of boiling water to the cooker.
  3. Wait for 3 minutes and add the chopped vegetables.
  4. After 10 minutes add the chicken fillets. 
  5. Add 100g chicken stock.
  6. Cook for 40 minutes.
  7. Add the rest of the chicken stock.
  8. Cook for a further 90 minutes.
  9. Blitz with a hand blender.
  10. Correct the consistency and the seasoning.
  11. Serve with brown bread.
