1 small turnip
1 small swede
3 medium potatoes
1 brown onion
3 gloves of garlic
1 can of beans
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 cup of rice (uncooked)
400gr cooked chicken
4 rashers of bacon
Bring the soup to the boil, you will see scummy stuff on the top, scoop this off as you don't want it boiling back into your soup, this also gets rid of any fat you have used.
Now ad your cabbage, rice, chicken, corn, beans and tin of diced tomatoes, skim the top and simmer for 15 minutes until the beans and rice are tender then stir through the chopped parsley.
This soup freezes beautifully, I bag one cup serves into clip lock bags, flatten them and freeze them. This soup made 24 cups of soup.
Other variations -
cook off 500gr of mince with the onions and leave out the chicken and bacon.
Swap the rice for vermicelli pasta
Stir through finely chopped spinach once you have turned it off.
