Leftover Winter Vegetable Soup

I made this soup just before Christmas as I’d made a glazed gammon joint and therefore had lovely gammon stock and vegetables left over from it. I was also very aware that like most Brits I’d over bought on the sprout front and had a bag I needed to use up before the big day! …
