Soup: Ingredients Unknown

17 Jan

My latest experiment didn’t go so bad… considering 🙂

Pre-requisites: one fridge full of unspent vegetables, and one decent length holiday coming up

Problem Description: Veg will definitely be off on return from holiday

Solution proposed:

  1. Pick the types of veg you want to go together. (The more the merrier I say, as this means less individual types of soup.)
  2. Personally, I like to throw some fruit in there too – good mushy apple never hurts a sweet tooth!
  3. For each veg-group, cut up and cook until going mushy. (It doesn’t matter if it is particularly thick, this will be resolved by the post-holiday hunger needs)
  4. Box it up.  (My chosen technicque is to get a suitable-sized container, drape a freezer back over/inside it, freeze it (container and all), remove the container from the freezer bag gently when frozen.  Result: perfectly formed rectangular freezer bags, with handy container still available to use next time.)
  5. Go on holiday waste-free!  (The fun bit, of course 🙂 )
  6. Come home to a well-stocked freezer
  7. When hunger strikes, take out a suitable portion + begin heating.
  8. Add salt and either milk or cream to taste.
  9. Add hot water until desired consistency is reached.
  10. Pop some toast and enjoy!

Perfect 🙂 … if I do say so myself!

    hahaha 😀

    I’ll propose a useful tip, should it taste pathetic – add vinegar. It changes the existing flavours:)

    I just learned last night to poach an egg in the microwave in a minute – best poached eggs I’ve ever had. New breakfast food I hope 🙂
