soup of the week ending 21 october 2017

morphy richards 501021 soup makerMonday: carrots and leeks left over from Sunday’s lunch, and a potato

Tuesday: lots of green leek leaves, two potatoes.

Thursday: two carrots, one onion, the last of Tuesday’s soup, half a yellow pepper, some frozen coriander (£1 a bag from Iceland).

Friday: a real mongrel soup today. Two tablespoons of leftover lentil dhal, some cauliflower stalk, some green leek leaves, chicken stock (see previous post), a wizened carrot, and a pinch of chilli flakes.

There was a little bit of Thursday’s soup left over, which I was going to use as a sort of starter soup for today, but I forgot. So I added the little bit of today’s leftover soup to it, and it’s gone in the freezer as a Soup For One when one of us is out (which often happens).

Apart from producing delicious soup, this little gadget is helping us to use up all our tired veg!
