I use this Leek and Potato one. You don't need the cream it mentions.

Or make a tomato-based one:

Saute onion & garlic
Add root veg (chopped carrots, spuds etc)
Pour in tin tomatoes (I just use the juice)
Add herbs if you like
Simmer for a while
Add softer veg - cauli/ broccoli, peas, corn

Blend half of the soup, mix with unblended.

Or Lentil soup.

Lots of ideas on here if you search the archives.

Look at Delias slow cooked root veg soup it takes a while to make, but it's hands off time IYSWIM, it freezes well and makes loads.

oh it's easy peasy.

fry an onion in a teeny bit of olive oil. add carrot, celery.
chuck in some stock and whatever veg you have lying around.

that's your basic mix. then add any of the following:
fresh or dried herbs
tin of tomatoes
garlic
