For some reason I got the itch to make soup last week. I immediately went on pinterest and combined a couple of different recipes, as you do.
- A big cauliflower head
- A couple of carrots (I used 3)
- A yellow onion
- Lots of garlic (as usual..)
- Chicken or vegetable stock (I used chicken stock) – about 2 litres
I cut the carrots and cauliflower into chunky bits and placed them to the side. I popped sliced onion and chopped garlic into a big pot and fried it in some olive oil until soft. I then put the veggies inside the pot and poured the stock all over it and let it boil for about 45 minutes until super super soft and mushy.
I added salt, pepper and various other spices during the boil – add whatever you like!
To mix it into a smooth soup I used my regular smoothie maker. I had to mix a little bit at a time as my smoothie maker is quite small, but it worked out in the end! To make it creamier I added a cup of coconut milk into the mix.
Options: Next time I’d probably add chopped sweet potato and some more veggies to make it more “chewy”.
I promise I’ll have more pictures during the cooking next time – I just didn’t think the soup would turn out so well, haha!!
Need to believe in my own cooking more I think 🙂
