  • Place all ingredients into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Skim the top if necessary. Cover and simmer for 20-25 mins, or until vegetables are tender.
  • Allow soup to cool slightly and remove the bay leaf. Puree the soup.
  • Reheat the soup gently, season with lots of black pepper, then serve.
  • A garnish of chopped herbs is nice, or my husband likes to stir in some chopped bacon pieces that have been grilled until nice and crispy. Enjoy.
