Got a fridge full of leftover veg?

If you have a few bits of tatty old veg in your locker or your fridge after Christmas - as long as they are still edible, why not make a soup. Using a pressure cooker its dead easy to make a tasty soup for all your crew. Its a fiery soup with a great bite of chilli and ginger.

You can use almost any veg, but a base with celery and onions makes a good flavoursome stock for any soup.
