This is a very quick soup to prepare because I've mostly used veg from my freezer.  I use Farm Foods freezer shop a lot, their prices are very good and apart from freezer items they also have bargains in most other grocery type items.  Their bags of frozen veg are quite big and I only have a small freezer so I thought I'd use up a couple of things that seemed to take me a long time to use up.

1 onion, roughly cut up
1 potato, cut into chunks
1 good sized sprig of parsly
and from the freezer - 
1 cup sweet corn
1 cup of swede
1 cup of carrots
good splash of white wine
1 cup of water
1 stock cube
seasoning to taste

Put everything into a big saucepan, bring to the boil then simmer for 35 minutes.  Liquidize/blend soup then pour back into the pan with about 1 cup of milk (I used half milk and half single cream because the cream was left over from something else),  Heat through and serve.

This is a more attractive looking soup than some I make!  It has a good flavour, not at all bland like I was worried it would be.
