This soup is very nutritious and quick to do. You can store in the freeze and eat it whenever you like. If you don't want to have the trouble of cutting the vegetables, there are lots of ready cut vegetables at Asda and Tesco you can use. The story goes that a beggar was knocking on doors with a stone inside a pan asking for some water to make stone soup. People would feel sorry and give him this and that to mix with the stone. He ends up with a massive soup.
