The weather is damp and drizzly with a chill in the air, just the right time for a nice hot bowl of homemade soup. I have bought a new toy this week a soup maker, what can I say it is brilliant, makes soup in 21 minutes, how good is that , quick, simple and healthy, no steamed up kitchen, no watching a pan for ages and less washing up.
To make a nice 1.6lt quantity just roughly chop your veggies put in stock, put on the lid press the button and Hey Presto, lay the table find husband and son in the meadow talk to chickens in the orchard throw them a juicy pear or apple. Bath the dog that rolled in something on the way to the meadow. Soups ready, 21 minutes, then all sit down and enjoy playing the guessing game by asking what's in the soup. I know it not big batch cooking but when you spent time growing your own precious lovely vegstables you don't waste anything the odd split tomato and reject veg can be salvaged, by just leaving it in the maker and adding a few more veg while simply making a coffee.
Please if you have any of your tasty recipes, drop by and let me know and we can share a bowl of soup together.
