Top tips.....

Use vegan alternative stock cube and cream etc and gluten free bread and olive oil for croutons.

To save time, roast double the amount of sweet potato at once and freeze in small bags, take out the freezer when you make up youir next batch of soup.

When cooking any green vegetables, save the water, allow to cool, pour into a bag and freeze to add to further soups or gravy.

Loose fresh root vegetables can be used in place of pre packed soup mixes, weigh and cut all the same size to ensure even cooking.

Customise your soup to suit... ie when cooked, seperate into two, add cream to one half if vegan or lactose intolerant, also individually customise the spice level.

This soup freeze very well.... double the quantity, freeze into soup cups for a quick nutritious lunch, Use the dualit toaster to toast a few slices of crusty bread, cut into soldiers and dunk into soup.
