That sounds great, try to get into the habit of making it fresh and it'll keep for a day or two. You've inspired me to start doing that again. :D You'll be bouncing come summer!

By the way what is tea? Is it your dins? If so, it's not enough. If tea is summat to keep the hunger pangs away between lunch and a late dinner, it's perfect. Eat lots and lots of good stuff, you'll do great! Good luck! :D

Well don't just talk about it, post us that recipe pretty please!!! :p
Lol.... That made me smile :)
Ok......
Right 1 tin of tomatoes
1 lb mushrooms... Or whatever you have
3 onions
1 pepper... Any colour
6 or 7 carrots
Half cabbage.... Any
Anything else you think needs using up... Swede, parsnip,cauliflower anything...
Put into large pan ( I use a pressure cooker, quicker ) add about half to three quarters of a pint of water ... ( basically so about a third is covered... Pinch of chili powder... Salt and pepper and cook til reasonably soft...
Right now for the best bit....
Blend ... The mushrooms act as a thickener and you end up with a yummy thickish broth... If it's too thick for your taste add more water ...
Everytime I make it tastes slightly different depending on what I throw in...
It's a great way to use up old veg... And tastes lovely... I'm not a thin soup fan... So this is great for me... And the more I eat the more I "go" if you know what I mean.
The only key ingredients for me are the mushrooms and a pepper... As for the rest... Experiment... Great way to get kids who are not veggie fans to eat some too.. At first years ago mine were shocked when I told them what was in it... But they always come back for more ...
Happy Blending....! X

Thank you! I'm going to try that next week, I would never have imagined a pepper and mushrooms are essential. It'll be nice to eat soup without stock, much better for the old salt levels. Looking forward to it, ta very muchly! :D
