Making home made soup all year around.

Friday, 5 June 2015

Is it only me that eats homemade soup all year round? My Husband thinks it is hilarious in the Summer when he is sitting at the table in the garden eating a salad and I have got a bowl of soup. I just think you can't beat it no matter what the weather, healthy and full of vitamins I can whip up a soup from just a few ingredients. 

Here is one of my favourite recipes from Sunrise Senior Living.

Butternut Squash & Lentil soup.

Ingredients:
400ml vegetable stock
150g butternut squash - peeled & diced
12g salted butter
2 onions - peeled and diced
3 carrots - peeled and diced
60g dried lentils
Salt & Pepper to taste

Method:
Make up the stock
In a separate pan, heat the butter on a medium heat.
Add the onions to the pan and saute for 5 minutes.

Add the carrots and squash and saute for 2-3 minutes.



Next, add the stock and lentils then bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer until the vegetables and lentils are tender, then using a hand blender puree until smooth.
Season to taste and add a swirl of cream for decoration and serve immediately.

Delicious!

Next on my list is this French onion soup, it really sounds yummy!
