NaBloPoMo July 08 Day 24
I picked up a few of these packet soups from ASDA’s world foods section. I think I mentioned before how I like to try the stuff that is being offered to our EU migrant population. In this case they are Polish soups, stll made by Knorr, which is a familiar name at least.
The handy little sticker on the back gives a translation of the ingredients into English. This is probably a basic legal requirement of being sold here. A translation of the name and soup description would also have been nice, but I suppose its really aimed at those that can read Polish.
What I can make out from the ingredients and a bit of Wikipedia is that it is White Beetroot soup with Garlic. Here I am, following the Polish cooking instructions, rather helpfully these included a picture of a jug saying 750ml and a simmering pan next to a clock with 5 minutes marked on it 🙂
The soup was interesting, very fresh and zingy, not overly garlicky. It was full of flavour but, had I not know what it was, I would have been hard pressed to identify white Beetroot. Oh yes, and at 180 calories for the whole lot, it was certainly filling yet easy on the waistline!
I’m now definitley looking forward to trying the other varieties I bought 🙂
Bonus picture time.
Here is me at work on late shift, enjoying my soup with a couple of slices of home baked bread and The Sims 2: Castaway on DS 🙂
