    Home made soup.

    Post by Campbell Brodie on Thu 8 Dec 2011 - 13:57

    Mermaid is making a big pot of home-made soup that I can help myself to over the next few days. Does anyone have some nice easy recipes for soup, that I can give to Trish, so I can have a wee change every now and then.

    CARROT AND ORANGE SOUP

    If you are not going to have this soup the day it is made, it freezes well but don’t add the cream beforehand — instead, stir it in when reheating.

    1 onion, roughly diced
    1 clove of garlic, roughly diced
    600g carrots, peeled and sliced
    1 litre chicken stock (a cube is OK)
    2 oranges, juiced (at a push you can also use some from a carton)
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Bring the stock to the boil and cook the carrots and onion until soft.
    Purée the vegetables and stock in a food processor until it forms a smooth liquid, then return the soup to a clean pan. Add the orange juice and season. Reheat the soup you are going to serve, adding a couple of spoons of cream just before serving.

    thanks Gypsy. I was given a blender last christmas along with a soup book.. LR wanted thick soup today so added some broth mix to the carrots and Potatoes and Leek. I don't like barley so had to pick the veg out and strain some liquid into my bowl. I am very fussy

    I can tell you something good for making soup though. Get yer arse down to LIDL, popped in there t'other day and they have absolutely brilliant blitzers for £14.99. I couldn't believe it when told say straight down there and they are top notch.

    Celery, turnip, carrots, onion and leek. Throw everything into big pot. Add 2 chicken/veg stock cubes in water. Cook and blend ( Argos have hand blenders for under a fiver). Great source of vitamins and if you're trying to lose weight. Has virtually no fat/calories and you can eat as much as you want ( though you'll find it quite filling)

    Fish stock is actually brill for most soups........thicken soups with natural things like potato, swede etc. You can boil spuds, blitz them down and stir in to speed things up.
