The Uber Super Soup!

After a rather taxing week, this soup seemed the perfect meal to kick us back into life!

1 leek
4 large carrots, diced
3 large sticks celery, diced
1 small-medium turnip, diced
fresh thyme, rosemary, oregano & parsley (just a little of each, or to your particular taste)
1 c diced mushroom
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can vegetable broth
3-4 c water, more as needed
1 can of rinsed and drained cannellini beans
4 medium zucchini, diced
1 cup diced green beans
1/2 bunch kale, shredded
1 can corn, juice included
salt and pepper,

After the chopping marathon...
Add the leek, carrots and celery to a hot pan and sweat with salt and pepper, adding a little water if necessary to prevent sticking.
Add turnip, herbs and mushrooms and then stir through the can of diced tomatoes, vegetable broth and water.
Bring to the boil and then add the last of the vegetables and simmer for about 40 minutes. Add extra salt and pepper to taste.
This soup can be served straight away, or saved for later, the flavors just get better. Great served with crusty whole wheat rolls or alternatively you can add a cup or two of cooked pasta bows/penne/macaroni for additional comfort!
Enjoy :)
