There is always soup on the menu here once a week. I just use whatever I have in, sometimes its a smooth soup, sometimes a chunky one. If I have the oven on the night before I will prepare and roast some vegetables ready. Sometimes I will add a handful of the dried soup mix to it also.
I made soup for tea yesterday , the vegetables I used this time were...
- Sweet Potatoes
I chopped the veg into chunks and sauteed for ten minutes.
I have plenty of herbs, seasonings, spices to choose from so I vary it each time.
Today I added a little curry powder and a little cumin, to give a little warmth.
I then transferred the sauteed veg to the slow cooker, added some veg bouillon and a generous squirt of tomato puree.
Then after a few hours when the veg had softened I blitzed with the hand blender and left on a low heat until tea time.
Enough for tea and some left for a lunch another day.
Soup is so cheap to make, and costs hardly anything if you use homegrown or yellow sticker veg.
