For all those lovely recipes out there...

Soup

Postby mrs moseley » Sun Aug 23, 2009 11:37 am

1kg squash/pumpkin peeled and diced
1 onion chopped
1 carrot sliced
1 stick of celery chopped
1 leek sliced
100g of butter (I use sunflower oil)
1litre veg stock
salt & pepper

Heat butter/oil in a pan and add onion, celery, carrot and leek and cook for 2 minutes.

Add chopped squash and cook with lid on until pumpkin has softened.

Add hot stock to pan and simmer for 20 minutes

Liquidize and season to taste.

Try adding any of the following to give soup an extra zing...
Garlic / chillies / milk or cream / coriander / thyme

I haven't tried adding anything yet, just made gallons of the basic recipe but will be more adventurous this autumn, makes a beautifully smooth soup, hope you enjoy it.

Oh, yummy! I used to do a soup very similar to this, but roasted the veg first instead of cooking it in a pan. Not sure what the difference would be - I guess roasting might make the root veg a bit sweeter...?

I have not tried roasting the veg so I am not sure.Why not make some up and then see what you think. :)
