Day 46 Soup

Today I made carrot and corriander soup.

Here is the recipe
  • one large leak (three quarters white, one quarter green)
  • six organic carrots (fresh from the earth)
  • three tables spoons of olive oil (virgin)
  • three cubes of chicken stock (gourmet)
  • an dash of Aroi Soy sauce (speciality deli)
  • a splash of Lee Perrins Worcestershire sauce ( a quick flip of the wrist is enough)
  • a pot of fresh corriander (home grown)
  • one litre of Evian still water (blue bottle)
  • 250 mls of Valio cream
Cut the leeks roughly up, and fry in the olive oil, when soft add one deci-litre of water. Dice and add the carrot, then the stock cubes, then the Soy and Worcestershire sauce. Add one litre of still water. Simmer until the carrots are soft, then mash with a potatomasher. Shred then add the corriander, then blitz in a blender. Add the cream. Pepper to taste.

It tasted like horse-shit, so I went out and had a pizza.
