Aarrrrgh! It’s lunchtime, you’re all hungry and your plan was to go grocery shopping after lunch, so there’s nothing in the kitchen. Well, have a dig around in the refrigerator for an onion, grab a potato and get some vegetables out of the freezer and you’re ready to start cooking.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat and when it is bubbling, add the onion, garlic, potato and bay leaf, if using. Cover with a lid and cook over medium heat 10 minutes, stirring a couple of times.
  2. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Stir in the vegetables, return the stock to a boil and boil 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Remov
