I know there are plenty of sites about with recipes for soup, what I want to know is if I buy 2 leeks, 2 carrots, will this make a nice soup. I want to make a huge pot of soup I can freeze, that will feed me for a while and is cheap. Any other ingredients I should add? I have stock cubes. I would love to make a beef soup, never done this before. Would beef soup be nice with leeks and carrots in it as I've only ever used these with chicken stock? What ingredients make a good beef soup, cheap and tasty that will freeze well and feed me for a while.

A (very) rough rule of thumb is a pound of vegetables to every pint of stock. Then just experiment.
OR, try Delia Smith's recipes for Leek & Potato soup (Vichysoisse) and Minestrone. The latter recipe usually serves three at the weekend and me for about four days during the week... but be prepared for the chopping/preparation.
