This soup is incredibly versatile, swap out any vegetables for the same grams using whatever you have in the fridge or freezer
If you are using cartons of long life stock, hold back on the salt until you have tasted the soup at the end, you may need 1/2-1 tsp salt but add it gradually tasting as you go
Try swapping some stock for coconut cream, and add 1-2 tsp of your favourite curry powder for a spicy warming winter soup
Store leftovers refrigerated up to 5 days or frozen up to 3 months
For stove stop instructions, chop the onion, garlic and ginger and sweat out in the oil.  Add all remaining ingredients except the leafy greens and simmer on low for 20 minutes.  Stir through the leafy greens.  This is a great recipe for making a double batch on the stove to get some freezer meals saved up.

I made a batch of this soup and it’s great! I added a zucchini and used skinless thighs with bone in which I cooked for 45 minutes using the stove method.
