I do all my prep work and put everything directly into the pot. I vary the vegetables for different flavors. I cover the vegetables with the stock and canned tomatoes and tbsp of Bay Leaf. Add enough water till everything is covered. Then I set to boil and as soon as I have reached the boil I turn down to simmer for a couple of hours. I serve this soup with some shavings of Parmesan. Sometimes I use parsnips, cabbage, peppers etc. whatever I am fancying or craving at the time. And believe me I do crave this soup weekly. It is Healthy and delicious. Try it.
