Chorizo winter soup

This started out as a can’t-be-bothered-but-we-need-to-eat-veggies sort of soup.  Fortunately Big T produced chorizo following a dash to the shops for nappies.  The original {vegan} version tasted pretty good anyway, but the chorizo seriously takes it over the top and makes it amazing.

  • a soup pack or the following veggies…
  • 1 onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 1 red potato
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 turnip
  • 1 swede
  • ~3L stock (veggie or chicken)
  • 1 C soup mix (I buy McKenzies, it has loads of nice barley in it)
  • 2 chorizo
  • chives (a good handful)
  • twig of rosemary (pinched from the neighbours)
  • freshly ground pepper
  • {secret ingredient} a tablespoon of vegemite

Chop it all up into bite-size bits and bung it all in a slow cooker (or in a covered pot on the stove if you’re that way inclined).  Bubble away until it is cooked through and tastes lovely (mine was *ready* after about 4 hrs in the slow cooker).  Served with some fresh crusty sourdough.

Bon appetit!
