Leftovers Soup - Recipe

Sunday was a day of weekend recovery before final exam week. The fridge contained limited ingredients and my body was overcome with laziness. When I spotted some potatoes, and onion, I knew what had to be done. I spent the midday making a sort of leftovers/peasant soup that turned out to be filling and tasty. Thought I'd share this super simple recipe I threw together!

Firstly, gotta peel them potatoes and onions.
Then you gotta chop em up and throw them into a bowl with a spoonful of olive oil along with some cumin and ground ginger powder.
Crush in a couple of garlic cloves as well. Set the oven to 300 F.
Mix the ingredients all up, then throw the contents of the bowl onto a baking tray.
Chuck it into the oven for about 20 min before putting them into a pot to boil with 1 cup of veg broth plus 3-4 cups of steeped Ginger Pu'erh Tea (David's Tea has the best!)
Serve that business with a dollop of nonfat plain yogurt, or else melt some cheese on top, I'm sure that'd be delicious too. Dash of pepper is always nice.
I like to rip pieces of pita bread and throw em into the soup.
Mmmmm! There's some Sunday soup for yah
