Winter Warmer from Sam’s kitchen

2 small onions peeled & diced
½ red pepper diced
1 large carrot diced
2 tomatoes chopped
3 mushrooms sliced
ó tsp garam masala
ó tsp turmeric
½ tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp chilli powder
½ tsp mild curry powder
oil for frying
1-1.5 pints of veg stock or water
Makes enough for 4 small bowls or §2 very decent sized in our house! Heat the oil in a saucepan on medium heat, add the onions & red pepper and cook for a few minutes then add all the spices & the mushrooms cook for a further few minutes.Then add the rest of the vegetables & tomatoes and a pint of the stock.
Bring to a simmer and leave to simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes & carrots are cooked through.
Blitz all or part of the soup with a blender, depending how smooth or rustic you want it. Add more stock/water as required if it’s too thick.
Season as required. Reheat and serve with bread or croutons.
Feel free to use the vegetables you like or have available at the time
