Everything All In Soup


Em is 3 years old now and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new baby. The optimist in me hopes she will continue to be a good helper . As she is at the age where she wants to do everything herself, I try to get her involved in things around the house but only recently have I mastered getting her to do some cookery. Chopping vegetables , pouring and mixing are definitely in her favourite things.


Being a sadly practical Mum , it’s not sparkly fairy cakes in this house, recently she has been helping with the weekend meals , this a kind use up everything soup is a staple in our house. Any mix of vegetables , with pasta or beans, all in a pan or in our house the pressure cooker for 10 minutes. Em gets on with some very slow chopping and mixing.  She is very focused and you can’t interfere , teaches me a lot of patience.


Everything All In Soup

1 tin of tomatoes
1 onion finely chopped
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
Assorted veg , celery , carrots , peas , runner beans , leeks.
2 handfuls of dried pasta or  one tin of beans , haricot , butter or cannellini

1. Place all the ingredients in a pressure cooker
2. Seal , cook for 10 mins on highest pressure.
3. Serve with crusty bread and grated cheese.

If you don’t have a pressure cooker a gentle simmer for 25 mins will work.
