Vegetable Soup


Question time please. What would you do when your fridge is stuffed with lotsa vegetables, or you actually don't like to waste ingredients? Tell me please. Generally, we try to save ingredients right? Absolutely. Look, money does not grow on trees, neither tumbles down from sky. So, logically, we don't want to waste ingredients. I agree. Money does not come easy, remember, the things we have to put up with at work place just to earn a living? I know. So, today, the food concept is cleaning up the fridge. Bring out whatever veggie you have to make a soup (Chick Kut Teh, Ikan Bilis Noodle Soup, Chicken Wanton Soup & Tanni Saar). This soup is a combo of potatoes, zucchini, mushrooms, dried and fresh herbs. Of course, I would love you to replicate this vegetable soup as in exactly, but you better work with what's in your fridge concept. Thank you all your love. Time for a bye now, there will definitely be a hi soon. 

Ingredients
1 large (abt 170g) potato - remove skin and cut into small cubes
1/2 (abt 100g) zucchini - cut into small cubes
100g button mushrooms - cut into pieces (depending on the size)
15 cherry tomatoes - cut into two
1 small (abt 80g) onion - chopped
6 garlic - chopped
20g butter
1 bunch coriander leaves - cut into long pieces
Salt for taste

Herbs
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried mint leaves
1 tsp dried basil leaves
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
Note: can replace with other suitable herbs.

Method:
When butter is heated, saute onion and garlic.
Add in cherry tomatoes.
Stir and cook for a minute or two.
Put in zucchini, potato and mushroom. 
Stir and pour in about 3/4 litre of water. 
Also add the herbs and season with salt. 
Stir and simmer over low heat to heat through while at the same to cook the veggies.  
Off the heat and garnish with coriander leaves.
