If you were wondering what to do with your leftover vegetables, you can use them to make soup.
In this video, Rochelle, a LEYF nursery chef, is going to show you how to create a simple dish that the whole family can enjoy.
Cooking activities are a great experience to support a child’s physical, sensory and social development.
What you need:
- sweet potato
- fresh tomatoes
- tinned tomatoes
But you can use whatever vegetables you have left in the fridge which need to be used up.
What to do
Wash all of your vegetables, then chop them up. The vegetables don’t need to be cut small, as they will be blended.
Once chopped, vegetables should be washed again and placed in a large pan of water, with a clove of garlic.
Bring the vegetables to the boil and, once they are soft, blitz with a blender to make your soup.
Serve with bread for a warming and nutritious lunch.
