I always have some basic veg in my fridge – onions, carrots, celery and garlic – as they can form the base for so many different dishes. Here, with a few extra storecupboard items, you can make a fantastic soup in no time. Feel free to puree or half-puree the soup, or leave it all chunky, depending on how you like it. Sometimes I add a few dried porcini mushrooms to make it extra special.
