It was a spur of the moment thing - OH was working late so I thought it be a good opportunity, have the kitchen to myself, put my music on etc. Plus all I have to do in the mornings is grab one out the freezer, in a bag and it'll be defrosted by lunch time ready to heat up.
It's a soup that uses loads of the super speed vegetables, if you search super speed in the recipe section there are a few threads with the recipe.
I sweated squash, pepper, courgette, onion, parsnip, carrots and sweet potato in fry light with thyme, salt and pepper. Added 2 pints of chicken stock and 2 bay leaves, simmered gently with the lid on for an hour then blitzed it with the hand blender.
ha, that looks like my kitchen on a sunday night when I cook up lots of stuff for the folowing week. Its great because I dont have to think about lunches everyday at work - just grab something out the freezer.
i wish I had a bigger fridge/freezer - ours is full with only fresh meat and frozen veg in it. I love making soup. Gonna try some more this weekend n see how much I can fit in, if any. How long do you think soup would last if it's only refridgerated rather than frozen?
i make a big load of pasta bake and freeze it in individual portions. lots of rotated veg with garlic & herbs, stirred into pasta with tinned tomatoes & passata (i add a bit of chilli powder to give it a kick) then a sprinkling of cheese on top. all free or a healthy extra if you add the cheese.
Cheers, I'll try the pasta bake. Might have to find some other flavours though - one thing I find with SW is it seems 90% of the recipes have tomato in some form in lol. I'm getting fed up of pasta with tomato sauce now
