Ingredients

  • 1 lb. vegetable
  • flavouring vegetable
  • ½–1 oz. butter margarine or other suitable

Method

Slice or chop the main and flavouring vegetables. Melt the fat in a deep pan and in it cook the vegetables over gentle heat for 10 min. Keep the lid on the pan and shake it vigorously from time to time. Boil the stock, add it to the vegetables with the herbs and other flavouring (if used) and simmer the whole until the vegetables are quite soft. This cooking time should be as short as possible
