I love winter foods.
I've had this carton of Chicken Style stock (it's vegetarian) in my cupboard for over a year (use by date is next November), so I've decided to use it for today's soup. I don't want the flavour too strong, so I'll add one and a half or two litres of water to it.
I'd use onions for a beef soup or a casserole.
Stir it up, then keep chopping.
(minor variation of that song by whatshisname)
A little garlic in front.
Add these to the pot, then let it simmer a while before adding the potatoes and cabbage.
The eighth serve? It was yummy, thanks very much.
