I made a veg soup this evening to use up the many random veg in the fridge. Used a well rated recipe from goodfood but it tastes too much of swede sad and there's over a litre of the stuff. Husband added sugar but still not great.

Any ideas? Or bin it?

Crumble in a stock cube?

Put in a tin of tomatoes and a table spoon of tomato purée . Then cook a large handful of pasta shells and put into the cooked blended soup.

swede is quite sweet so probably don't add more sugar...

Would pepper and less sweet herbs like thyme and bayleaf help?

Potato also is a great remedy for most culinary 'issues' - maybe grate some in

Add some chilli powder and pinch of cayenne pepper or maybe a tin of
chopped tomatoes and blend.

Might try tomatoes. It's got tomato puree and veg stock in already. Also jerk seasoning. It tastes a bit bitter? Veg were: half Leek, courgette, 3/4 swede, small turnip, two carrots, Red chilli, head of broccoli... told you it was random

Melt in some Philadelphia or add some cream to add creaminess and tone down the flavours?

Well, my 8 month old likes it as is thank goodness for infant taste buds so it's portioned up and frozen for her smile
