It’s been created by our very own Assistant Head of Savoury, Wade, so this is a truly tried and tested recipe from one of the incredible chefs we’re privileged to have on our team.

What could be better than hunkering down on the sofa with a steaming bowl of soup and a Piglet’s savoury bake? Here are a few scrumptious Piglet’s Pantry snacks that will go perfectly with our Winter Warmer soup: 

  • Vegan Sausage Roll
  • Winter Scotch Eggs
  • Vegan Spicy Bean Roll
  • Tear and Share Sausage Roll Wreath

Our root vegetable soup recipe is delicious, quick, and adaptable, just pick and choose the root vegetables that you like best. Whether you are cooking up a big pot for the whole family, or looking for something easy to freeze and keep for later, this soup is an great lunch, or light dinner option and here’s how you can make it:

Ingredients: 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 medium onion
  • 3 garlic cloves 
  • 800g/1lb of root vegetables (e.g. sweet potato, potato, celery, celeriac, carrots, parsnips. Butternut squash is great too) 
  • 1 vegetable stock cubes with 200ml of water 
  • Season to taste with cracked black pepper and salt 
  • Bouquet garni (optional)
  • Optional Garnishes: Homemade croutons, squeeze of lemon juice, drizzle of olive oil, chopped fresh herbs or single cream
  1. To begin, carefully peel the vegetables.
  2. Dice and slice the veg so they are all a similar size (the smaller you chop, the quicker they’ll cook!)
  3. Heat the oil and gently fry the onion until soft and golden brown.
  4. Next, saute the root veg in the same pan, stirring occasionally. Stir in the garlic and continue frying for a few minutes more. 
  5. Crumble the stock cubes in the water, add the water to the saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiled, reduce the heat down to a simmer and add the bouquet garni. Cook for 20 minutes or until all vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally. Remove the pan from the heat and take out the garni. 
  6. Once off the heat, blitz the soup with a blender until it reaches your desired texture and season with some salt and black pepper. 
  7. Voila, you have yourself some delicious root vegetable soup – the perfect accompaniment to a Piglet’s Pantry sausage roll.

We really hope you enjoy this vegetable-filled, delicious vegan recipe as much as we do. If you create our root vegetable soup, or any of our Winter Warmer recipes, don’t forget to show us on social media, by using the hashtag #mypiglets.
