Super simple messy soup was just the ticket this evening. It was so bbbrrr but beautiful out today.


  • 1 turnip peeling and chopped
  • 3 potatoes peeling and chopped
  • 1 leek finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tin of coconut milk
  • Mustard
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Veg stock
  • Salt/Pep
  • Chilli flakes


  1. Cook turnip and potatoes in water and veg stock
  2. Sautée garlic and leek in a pan
  3. Add leek and garlic into the pot of cooked turnip, potatoes and veg stock/water
  4. Blitz with hand blender or transfer to blender
  5. Add 1 tin of coconut milk (optional) almond milk or soy cream are great here too or none of the above if you are on a calorie counting New Years start.
  6. Oodles of parsley, thyme, salt and pepper and a shake of chilli flakes
  7. I also added a spoon of my favourite whole grain and cognac mustard and sprinkling of sunflower seeds.
  8. Quantities should make 5-6 bowls of soup.

I divided the remaining soup into individual freezer bags with one serving per bag.

They should hold for a month or so in the freezer. Handy for those lazy lunch days.
