Very happy to make broth (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

soup

Here is my best explanation:

'broth' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'very happy' is the subsidiary indication.

'very' becomes 'so' (I've seen this in other clues).

'happy' becomes 'up' (I've seen this in other clues).

'so'+'up'='soup'

'to make' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for soup that I've seen before include "Eg, potage, broth", "First course", "See 19", "Broth", "Minestrone?", "Starter", "Opus (anag) - typical starter", "Cock-a-leekie, for example", "Eg, mulligatawny" and "Eg, minestrone".)
