Hot potato soup Monday 14th March

Soups are simple and good and very easy to make. Ten minutes for preperation and 25 minutes to cook. Here is my recipe for hot potato minced meat soup.

5 small potatoes diced (type firm rather than mushy)
2 carrots diced
2 onions diced
2 cloves of garlic sliced (garlic is the new salt)
200 gm of minced meat
1 vegetable stock cube
Sprinkling of parsley and chives.

Saute the onions with a knob of butter, add 1 litre of Evian bottled water... just kidding tap water is good enough, Add the other ingredients and boil for 25 minutes. Test the potatoes with a knife to see that they are ready. If they fall off the knife they are good to go. As a garnish add the chives and parsley at the end. Serve with oat and linseed bread, and have a beer to go along with it.
