Root Veg Soup 

The only thing to have when you feel sluggish is soup. A perfect winter warmer you can drive it with homemade brien bread or a nice crusty roll. You can double the amount of veg and freeze it. Also you can swap the stock melt for home made stock or chicken bouillon. 

This is a thick soup and can be served as a chunky broth or as I prefer a smooth blended one perfect for dunking the crusty bread into. 
A knob of butter

1 onion 

2 bay leaves 

2 sprigs of thyme 

Tsp fresh parsley 

Two sticks of celery 

Clove of garlic 

4 carrots

2 parsnips

Method : Pop the celery onion garlic herbs and butter into big pot. Fry them gentle in the butter until the onions are translucent and soft.
