- This recipe makes a chunky vegetable soup. To make a smooth soup, simply put the soup into a liquidizer after stage 5 and add more stock (or water) until it reaches your desired consistency.

- You can put any vegetables you like (or have) into this soup, provided they are cut into similarly sized pieces. As a rule of thumb, harder vegetables should go in at stage 4 and softer vegetables should go in at stage 5.
