3 carrots (chopped in 250ml water)

2 leeks (chopped in 250ml water)
6 white potatoes (diced in 250ml water)
1 sachet of Crofter's Vegetable Soup Mix

1. Cook the lamb in 500ml of boiling water for 1 hour on a medium/high heat

2. Add the swede along with the water and cook for another 30 minutes

3. Pour in the carrots with water and cook for another 30 minutes before adding the potatoes and half of the leeks (along with the water), and season with salt, pepper and the Oxo cubes
