Do you end up with leftovers after Christmas dinner? We always hope for leftover turkey and my mums christmas ham but as far as the roast dinner vegetables go, it can be a bit hit and miss. I think my mum would always rather there be more than not enough but it is always hard to guess just how much everyone will eat on Christmas day after a whole day of feasting (We eat Christmas dinner in the evening in our house).
If you do find yourself with some leftover veggies after Christmas dinner, don’t throw them out! Keep them in the fridge and turn them into a veggie soup on boxing day. It is so quick and so easy, you’d be crazy not to give it a go.

- 1 Bowl Leftover Cooked Vegetables I used roast potatoes, parsnips, carrots, green beans, sweetcorn, broccoli, cauliflower and brussels sprouts
- 1 litre Stock or as much as you need to cover the vegetables
- 1 pinch Salt & Pepper to taste
- Place any leftover vegetables into a large saucepan and cover with stock.
- Bring to the boil.
- Once boiling, turn the heat down and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Once heated through, turn off the heat and allow to cool slightly before blitzing with a hand blender.
- If you have used quite a lot of startchy vegetables like potatoes and parsnips, you may need to add more stock to think the soup out a little.
- Season with salt and a generous amount of pepper and serve or freeze for another day.
