Todays soup is a home made Lentil and Vegetable number which I knocked up yesterday. We had a Gammon joint for Sunday lunch, which Paul cooked in a large pan of water. Once the Gammon was removed I hit on the idea of using the water, now wonderfully flavoured by the Gammon, to make soup.
I strained the stock and added chopped Carrots, Swede and Onions and some washed Lentils. I added 3 cloves of garlic and a large teaspoon of dried parsley, it didnt need salt, the meat had taken care of that.
That was it, total prep time around 10 minutes, I brought it to the boil then simmered it for 30 minutes. I didnt blend this one, I thought the texture was pretty good as it was.
Its actually made 3 portions so there is some in the fridge to enjoy later this week.
I’ve just had a portion for my lunch and I can confirm that although it doesnt look anything special, it is very filling and totally delicious 🙂
Is this becoming some Soup and Shoes blog?? What a bizzare combination of subjects, I must come up with something more interesting before you all fall asleep!
