Tasty thick vegetable soup

When M makes us a really tasty thick vegetable soup for dinner, we all comment on how great it is and I’m not sure the last time I saw the boys clearing their plates so fast. It’s perfect for dinner on a wintry day, and also in a thermos for lunch. C particularly likes it in his Harry Potter Thermos. ;-)
