The video is up on  YouTube channel. 

Peel carrots, pumpkin, turnip and Irish potatoes. Put  vegetables and garlic into a pot with two cups of water

Cook vegetables on medium heat until fork tender.

Meanwhile, the vegetables are boiling. Use the back of a spoon and crush the escallion; this is to release the oil that is in the escallion

When the vegetables are partially cook, add one more cup of water. Add the escallion, thyme and hot pepper as well. Cover pot and allow the flavours from the  scallion, thyme and hot pepper to be infuse into the pot

When the vegetables are cooked, add the shrimps and cock soup mix. Stir. Add salt if needed. Cover pot and simmer soup on low heat for ten more minutes.

Remove from heat and serve hot.
