Note, if you do not have all the ingredients ,you can simply improvise and replace the missing ingredients with some pasta, chopped cabbage or peppers for e.g.!
Place the chopped potato,sweet potato,celery,lentils and vegetable stock cubes in a pot and cover with water.Bring to boil and then add broccoli,turmeric,mixed herbs and tin of tomatoes, stir ingredients well, turn down heat and simmer until ingredients are soft.You can have the soup at this stage but if you prefer a richer more aromatic flavour,place the soup now in a casserole dish,sprinkle the top of the soup with more mixed herbs ,oregano etc and place in the oven at a medium heat for 30 minutes.Add some more water to the soup in casserole dish if not sufficient liquid, before placing in the oven.You should have enough for a couple of meals!Enjoy!
