Delicious and simple vegetable soup, combining carrots, leeks, celery and potatoes delicately flavoured with Bouquet Garni, Mixed Herbs and Black Pepper, an ideal winter warmer. Great for keeping all the family warm on Bonfire night too.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan and gently fry the carrots, leeks and celery for 5 minutes.
Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, then gradually blend in the stock. Add the Bouquet Garni, Mixed Herbs and season to taste. Bring to the boil, then add the potatoes.
Cover and simmer for 25 minutes, or until the soup is to the desired consistency and the vegetables are cooked through.
