Monday I went for a Thai sort of thing. Three carrots, some frozen sweet potatoes, an onion, about 40g of creamed coconut, two teaspoons of smooth peanut butter, pinch of chilli flakes. I think the third carrot made it too thick, but it tasted lovely.
Tuesday 45g of lentils (soaked for 30 minutes), 1 medium carrot, small onion, teaspoon of smoked paprika, a dollop of tomato ketchup, about half a cup of yesterday’s soup. No bouillon! Very nice, but lacking … something. Bit thin, maybe, and needed more seasoning. Might try some thyme.
Thursday small amount of broccoli, the green part of a large leek, ¾ of a small courgette (the rest had gone mouldy). This wasn’t all that nice; it tasted a bit raw, and not blended enough. Of course, there is a “blend” button on the machine, but I didn’t think about that till we’d eaten it!
Friday one medium-large potato, which was sprouting in the cupboard, and a bit soft (I cut the sprouty bits off, but didn’t bother peeling it), and the white part of yesterday’s leek. This was really nice.
Reminder: all soups have a teaspoon of Marigold vegetable bouillon, salt, and black pepper.
So that’s another week done – we’re still hugely enamoured of the soup maker, and it has earned its permanent place on the worktop.
