Soup

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

Just recently I mentioned here on another thread that my spice shop was selling trays of tinned plum tomatoes which worked out at 8p a tin, so I stocked up, and subsequently my now favourite soup was born.

Tomato and chick pea soup with courgette dumplings

This is obviously a simple soup but thought I would share as it sort of came about when I accepted unwanted pitta bread, carrots, celery and courgettes from my neighbour and I want to remember it!

I usually batch freeze diced onion, carrots and celery anyway, so I sauteed some in olive oil with a teaspoon of minced garlic and another of dried thyme. I added a veggie stock cube, two tins of plum tomatoes and topped it up with boiling water. Then in went a couple of broken up pitta and it simmered for 20 minutes. I whizzed the soup then added a drained tin of chick peas and six small dumplings (I made mine with a packet mix) to which I had added a small diced courgette. 20 minutes later when the dumplings were huge it was ready. I added extra hot chilli sauce to mine. I think while I am happily drowning in tinned tomatoes, this will be on my menu at least weekly. :hungry:

Gosh, that crab soup sounds superb, likewise the chicken soup. Simple but so very good.

I've had a hankering for pea and mint soup for a while. I might just follow that recipe with yoghurt. Thanks PP.

Veg and lentil soup from the Student Cookbook 2007 is very tasty, and very easy, and very cheap. Happy to post recipe.

I do like the look of Yotam's burnt aubergine soup. I'd only need the brinjal - three hefty sized ones in my spice shop currently on sale three for £1. I've been eyeing them up for the last couple of days wondering what I could do with them, so that link was good timing! I'd leave out the starchy accompaniment for dieting purposes, but I would probably dollop some natural yoghurt on top to serve. :chops:

PP - that first asparagus soup on link 4 came just at the right time as it's my mum's favourite and I promised to make her some if she provides the asparagus! And I will be noting down the coconut - coriander chutney recipe too! :chops:

My soup de jour has been spiced cream of cauliflower with chick peas. Onions, turmeric, cumin, chilli flakes, garlic then cauliflower florets and cubes of potato, stock then simmer, puree and swirl through natural yoghurt and stir in a tin of chick peas. Some fresh coriander would have been nice. I ate it with a naan.

We have loads of lettuce in the garden ... today's lunch will be a Lettuce, mint and pea soup ... based on this one

https://www.riverford.co.uk/recipes/vie ... -mint-soup

but as we have large Little Gems to use up and only half the quantity of peas in the freezer I'm making half the quantity ... we also have a drizzle of single cream left in the fridge so I'll add that and make it just slightly naughtier ... it's taken ten minutes to get to simmering point on the hob, and that includes picking the lettuce and mint, and it's smelling fantastic ... :hungry:

Spookey ! Mr. Z brought home two bags of fresh peas in pods on Friday, yesterday I podded them and stuck the pods in my SC overnight with some water and mint. Nice and soft today so whizzed them and sieved them, resulting in a lush very pea flavoured stock. Used some of it in the P risotto for lunch with the plaice and there is enough stock and peas to make a pea (and maybe bacon) soup for tomorrows lunch. No lettuce in this household so just P soup tomorrow...

I must make pea and mint soup soon using my mint plant before it takes over the kitchen!

My soup today was red onion, garlic, Scotch bonnets, Madras curry paste, tinned tomato, red lentils and fresh coriander, zapped with the stick blender. Very nice it was too.

Sounds tasty Tezza!
We had sweet potato and carrot with ginger and coconut, whizzed to smooth and velvety in the jug blender.
