Vegetable Curry Soup.

Ingredients:

1 litre of Home-made Vegetable stock (left over from the stock used to make Nettle soup)

4 carrots Peeled and diced.

2 small Parsnips, peeled and diced.

1 Piece of Swede, about 1 cm thick, peeled and diced.

3 Spring onions finely sliced.

1 slice of Red Onion, about 0.5 cm thick, peeled, sliced, and diced.

1 Heaped teaspoon of Medium Curry Powder; Although I can handle hot Curries and Chillies, I much prefer to be able to taste all of the flavours behind the spice.

1 level teaspoon of ground Coriander.

1/2 teaspoon of ground white pepper.

2 level tablespoons dried, split Chickpeas.

2 level tablespoons dried orange Lentils.

2 Level tablespoons dried soup mix of pulses and grains

1 litre water.

Sling it all into a saucepan, bring to the boil, turn down to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes, stirring occosionally.

For the thickening Roux;
50g Butter or Margarine, and 2 heaped teaspoons of Cornflour.

In a seperate pan, melt the butter or Margarine, add the cornflour, and stir into a smooth roux. Add the roux to the main pan whilst still simmering and stir for a few minutes until thickened.

Serve in a pre-warmed bowl with some bread.


Approx. 1 litre of pre-made and frozen Vegetable stock, going into the pan to be thawed out.

Note that my pan of soup boiled over while I was reading another post here on cooking for engineers. Now, what is it they say about a watched pot not boiling?

Well, an unwatched pot does, and it boils over! Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud

I can't tell you how good this tasted. Now it's time for a few bottles of chilled Perry. Big smile
