Method

Potatoes are a healthy and hearty addition to any soup. The potatoes in this soup combine with seasonal veg and tinned kidney beans to provide satisfying suppers or office lunch favourites.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan and gently fry the garlic, carrot, celery and potatoes for 3-4 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Season to taste and sprinkle with the parsley to serve.

"I’m so excited to share this recipe with you, it’s such a winner! It’s so quick to throw together and so satisfying. I love using potatoes instead of noodles, it’s a really fun twist on the dish and a nice new way to use a simple ingredient. The flavours in this are so great too – the mix of sesame, ginger, chilli and coriander with spring onions, peppers, kale and mushrooms is just so delicious. Can’t wait to hear what you all think!"
