  • Yayyy, found the thread, thank you Bev.

    I have to confess I am a meat eater but I would love to share a carrot and courgette soup recipe. It might not be to everyone's taste as it has a natural sweetness to it. Anyway, some of the amounts are approximate, it all depends on your own tastes.

    7 medium to large carrots.
    2 medium to large courgettes.
    1 large onion.
    1 clove of garlic. (or 2 if you prefer a stronger flavour, leave it out entirely if you don't like garlic)
    1 -2 pint of veg stock.
    Olive Oil.
    Sage
    Paprika (smoked or unsmoked depending on your preference) I find Smoked works much better.

    Peel and cut all the veg into big chunks, roast with olive oil in the oven on 180-200 for about 20-30 mins.
    When the veggies are roasted sautee the garlic (if using) in some oil in a soup pan then add the veggies.
    Add in 1 pint of the stock, sage and paprika. Cover and allow to cook for about 15 minutes then blitz with a blender.
    This can be a really thick soup so add more stock if you wish to make it thinner.
    Pepper to taste.

    Hope it's not a disappointment peeps.

  • Sounds delightful Nanny, and I loathe garlic so make a very very very similar one using chilli 🌢🌢as a substitute. You’re right in that it’s very sweet, but truly makes a wonderfully warming winter nights soup πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ΅. Thanks Nanny, keep them coming!

    Spooky you asking re recipes Nat as only yesterday made such another delicious soup 🍡. I think home made soups are unbeatable, so altho not always as β€œquick” as you’d want a go to meal to be, they are soooooooo worth the time and effort! I felt real drained when got in yesterday but after buying loads of veg, especially to invent a soup, I forced myself!

    Now, without blowing my own 🎺, this really was delicious 😊

    Carrot apple lemon soup πŸ₯•πŸ‹πŸπŸ΅

    5 carrots πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•πŸ₯•
    5 new potatoes
    2 small apples 🍏🍏
    1 large lemon πŸ‹
    1 courgette πŸ†
    Bunch spring onions
    Mooli (Asian radish)
    4 JalapeΓ±o (adjust to taste)
    2 baby aubergines πŸ†πŸ†
    Edamame beans πŸ‘…πŸ’₯

    700ml vegetable stock (2 Oxo cubes plus teaspoon marmite)

    Add two tablespoons rapeseed oil to large pan, high heat on hob.

    Heat all ingreds, EXCEPT the edamames and the lemon, chopped into the large pan. Use the whole of the mooli.


    Stir to coat with oil, then add the hot stock.


    Blend then add πŸ‹juice.

    Serve into bowls then add cooked edamame beans to top.

    No seasoning needed. Divine! Fresh and fragrant!




    If tho, that all sounds too much shopping and hard work, my ultimate go to food right now, as I’m trying to introduce more vegan foods to my diet, is the Linda Mac Cartney scampi 🐠🐟, shown earlier within the thread. Great quick meal, you even cook it in the original foil, so less washing up πŸ˜‚, and super tasty with Mc Cain fries.

    Right now tho, I’m trying to be healthy, and instead of boring cabbage soup diet, I’m doing the Bevs Soups diet, so bulk of my weekly meals are my soups. Tons of crisp in between mind πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„, but they’re my only vice πŸ‘.

  • @Bev as the reigning soup queen you'll like this...

    Realised yesterday that a bunch of stuff in my fridge was about to go off... a key step toward cooking in a more sustainable way is by making sure you don't waste any food - according to charity WRAP approx 10 million tonnes of food are wasted in the UK every year!

    Sooo...

    I made a soup! (/it's probably more of a broth tbh)

    Chopped up carrots, onion, celery, garlic and some chicken I had left over from a previous meal...

    Bunged them all in a pot with some olive oil to cook for about 5 mins. Then added a mix of chicken + veggie stock (just over 1 litre) and some tinned tomatoes. I also then added some cut up bacon as that also had to be used up!

    Bring to the boil.. simmer for about 30 mins..

    done! Lunch for the week sorted, and fridge cleared of any foods that would've gone to waste otherwise (plus, it's actually super yummy)

    Can easily be made veggie too (could add sweet potato or beans instead of meat?), I just happened to have some meat remaining from other dinners that week

    WRAP have a great website here which has lots of tips and recipes on how to avoid food waste and use up any leftovers

    Chopped up carrots, onion, celery, garlic and some chicken I had left over from a previous meal...

    Bunged them all in a pot with some olive oil to cook for about 5 mins. Then added a mix of chicken + veggie stock (just over 1 litre) and some tinned tomatoes. I also then added some cut up bacon as that also had to be used up!

    Bring to the boil.. simmer for about 30 mins..

    done! Lunch for the week sorted, and fridge cleared of any foods that would've gone to waste otherwise (plus, it's actually super yummy)

    Can easily be made veggie too (could add sweet potato or beans instead of meat?), I just happened to have some meat remaining from other dinners that week

    WRAP have a great website here which has lots of tips and recipes on how to avoid food waste and use up any leftovers
