Easy soup recipe -- what's yours? ( I just bought a hand blender!)
I bought a hand blender in Asda yesterday. Twelve pounds reduced from seventeen, and it's brilliant. Just made a yummy soup which I invented myself.
I used half a swede, 1 onion, 3 potatoes, half a marrow and 3 carrots, cut into cubes, sprayed with frylight and roasted at 200 degrees until soft and a little crispy (about an hour)
Added boiled red lentils, a bowlful. I cooked these while I prepped the veg. They went really mushy-- it looked like porridge. Thickened the soup up nicely!
1 veg stock cube made up in boiling water. I put in about 750 ml.
Bring to the boil adding 2 cloves grated garlic, some cumin, chilli flakes, dried coriander...whatever's in the cupboard, really...
Whizzed it all up and it was lovely. Ate it with some sticks of celery instead of bread-- the crunchiness went very nicely with the smooth soup.
What are your favourite soup recipes? Do you have a flavour I can try that isn't my stir-fry staple of garlic, chillies and coriander?
