The Apprentices' Soup

While I was away last Sunday ‘the apprentice’ took over the kitchen and made this lovely winter garden soup.
Apprentice Soup

Fresh from the garden;

4 carrots
4 small winter radish
2 jerusalem artichokes
1 medium leek
4 bay leaves
1 small celery head
2 ‘Rooster’ potatoes
2 ‘Pink fir apple’ potatoes – both waxy so hold together well in soups.
Olive oil to sweat the vegetables

From the garden – stored
3 large shallots
3 garlic cloves
Plus stock, seasoning and bouquet garni

Peel and chop all the vegetables keeping the potatoes separate for use later
Add the olive oil, bouquet garni and vegetables to sweat down until soft
Add the stock and bay leaves
Add seasoning to taste (sea salt and black pepper)
Add the potatoes
Leave to simmer over a low heat until the potatoes are cooked.
