Todays soup

1 Large Carrot diced, about the same amount of Swede, 2 large sticks of Celery de-stringed and chopped and 1 large Onion chopped. Fry the whole lot off slowly in a tablespoon of olive olive along with a couple of peeled cloves of Garlic, it will be about 45 mins for everything to soften nicely. You’ll now want to add about a litre of water or stock, I used the stock saved from boiling a gammon, you might have to make do with stock cubes.

Its going to look something like this after simmering for around 45 mins, now taste and add some fresh ground pepper and any other spices you’d like. I cant let you in on my own preferred blend of spices or I’d have to kill you 🙂

Stick it in the blender or use one of those fancy stick blender things and, voila!

All thats left to do is enjoy.

PS, one of team, the lovely Luke, brought in some Indian Egg Fried Rice today so (after eating tons of that) I shared my soup with the team. The verdict? Fantastic flavour if a bit thick in consistency, I agree, I’d dilute it if it was meant to be served to others but I like it thick, that way I dont eat bread with it, its more filling and possibly healthier too 🙂

    That really is soup-er!, LOL!!

    I think I would prefer it unblended with the lumps of stuff in though, but apart from that it’s another triumph!

    I’ll look forward to the next one! 🙂

    I semi-agree or maybe part blended or even some small arty-farty veg after the blend or … I’ll just bugger off and shut up and leave you to enjoy the yummy soup.

    p.s. Did I see you hiding behind the flower seed carousel at Tesco last night?

    If I was doing this soup for home I agree, I’d have left it coarser and runnier too, since this is designed for taking to work in a flask and eaten, almost drunk from a cup, this worked for me.

    If I was really arty-farty-ing it up ?I’d have made another soup in a contrasting colour, a smooth potato and leek maybe and poured them together into the bowl to give that ying-yang look!

    As for being being behind the flower seed rack, I mean come on, I thought we’d sorted this stalker thing out? Anyway, it was the veg seeds.

    What’s this about you stalking someone!?… Remember when I came down to Sheffield and you stalked me as well…

    Grassed me up for smoking as I recall… Bah! 😉
