    I have brought an asda fresh tastes leek and potato soup mix. It is basically a bag of diced potatos, leek, onion and some parsley but cant find it to see if it is syned or not.
    You just add water to it and bring to boil and simmer for 20-25 mins.

    Anyone know?
    Also could I add a stock cube to this???

    TIA

    If it's just diced veg in a bag then yes this would be free on Green and Extra Easy. I can't see why you couldn't add a stock cube to it - stock is free now too!
    Enjoy x

    I'd have thought they'd come with a small booklet of recipes- most appliances like that do!XX

    It's a bag of mixed veg that Asda do to make your own soup. You just boil the veg with water and stock, no chopping or peeling required. You can then blend it if you want. It's Asda's Fresh Tastes bit in the fruit/veg aisle.

    I'm not keen on the potato & leek soup mix, but still fine for a quicky ;-)
    What I do like, though, is just a couple of feet up from it...the ready to use sweet potatoe & butternut squash bags. simmer in a stock and blend for a really hearty, yummy, decedant soup ♥

    I don't really understand why you would want to pay someone to chop your veg for you when you can do it yourself in under 5 minutes but each to their own :D

    I can't speak for others, but I work full time, 20 miles from home. I also have four dogs to walk at least three times a day, and this adds up to me being out of my house for a good 15-16 hours each day, for 5/6 and sometimes even 7 days a week. I also have a lovely husband, a social life, and a bed (!) lol. I do all...and I mean ALL of my cooking for breakfast, lunch & dinner from scratch, and sometimes it's a godsend to be able to chuck a back of pre prepared veg in a pot, or roasting tray. My version of a ready meal I guess.
    To be honest, with some of the offers that you can pick up, it can work out cheaper to buy these things, especially when you take into account the wastage you 'pay' for in 'peelings 'n' pith' as I call it! lol

    I agree! I have an exhausting, stressful job (working for 'the council'), three children and a husband who works all weekend so if I can sometimes save 20 to 30 minutes peeling and chopping with minimal extra cost, then I take it!! No brainer for me I'm afraid
