Soup

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

I would love to help with the dried country mix request but would probably be on the receiving end rather than the giving. I am always drawn to buying these mixed pulse bags and they invariably get shoved to the back of the cupboard.

I would soak overnight, then the next day prep some fresh veg (onion, celery, carrot). Fry off some meat, add the veg, then the soup mix and heat through. Sling in the SC and cover with stock ... set for high for about an hour, then low for about 4 hours, or until the beans in the soup mix are cooked.

This is just what I would do - it's not a recipe as such ... ;)

I do much the same as Patsy though tend to use chicken stock and the meat picked from the carcass plus some leeks. It would also work with a ham hock though I'd slow cook the hock for a couple of hours on high before adding chopped veg and the broth mix.

Don't know about that Patsy your's is a pretty tasty sounding soup - can't beat a bung it in and see what happens "recipe", 99% of my cooking is just that :lol: (always a beggar when you try to replicate or write down what've you've done much to my kids amusement/consternation ;)

I'd definitely soak the pulses overnight or else boil up for a few minutes and let stand for an hour or two. I usually do the latter, as I forget to soak the day before ;)
Drain and rinse and throw in the pot! I do that for lentils as well, they seem to take ages in the SC otherwise.

Thanks everyone - it was the ratio of liquid to veg/country mix, and the timing/ temperature I think I was probably most curious about. All sorted now - thanks.

When you've worked that out Gruney can you let me know please ;) ... I normally just make sure everything is covered with liquid. Of course in a SC you don't usually need as much liquid, but you don't want it to boil/simmer dry ;) :tu:

I just tend to add enough liquid after everything else is in to reach 2/3 of the way up my 3.5L slow cooker. I use around 1/3 of a pack of mix.

Thanks liketocook - That's thing - we're trying to make soup, not a veg stew, aren't we.

I don't know if this is appropriate, but all night I've had a recurring dream about making soup with pack mix and hens' feet.

I'm delighted to report that, today, and using all the advice I received here, I made 5l of vegetable soup/stew. Absolutely superb. Thanks for all the help and encouragement.

A friend of mine was out to lunch yesterday and had a soup I've never heard of, potato and paprika.
I fancy trying a version of it at home this week, I've an idea involving Kavey's gnocchi recipe using poppy seeds to serve in it.
I'll mess about and report back :D

Sounds lovely - I had something like that a Polish colleague brought into work ages ago though it had chunks of smoked sausage in it but apart from that seemed to be a fairly standard smooth potato soup with paprika & caraway added. It was really good and could see it working well without the sausage but with dumplings or gnocchi. I'll look forward to you reporting back.

Thank you, I always serve goulash with poppy seed noodles which I got from Delia so can see the flavours working.
The gnocchi are made with smoked cheese and are light as a feather, best I've ever tasted so hoping it works.
I love playing around and combining ideas.

I've just made a batch of Summer Veg soup ... sort of minestrone ... we have yellow courgettes, Swiss chard, runner beans and lots of basil from the garden, plus a couple of onions and a yellow pepper and a couple of sticks of celery from the salad drawer, a tin of tomatoes and a tin of cannellini beans and some Marigold bouillon powder ...... voilá .... a big batch of soup .... I've had some for lunch today, OH will have some for lunch tomorrow when I'm out and there'll still be loads left ........ :chops:

I'm sure I made a green summer minestrone a couple of years back, maybe a Good Food recipe?
Anyway, though I can't remember the details I do remember we enjoyed it.
Yours sounds similar.
