I made carrot & coriander soup yesterday, which turned out to be pretty tasty eaten with fresh crusty bread, just right as a meal in itself, for these cooler wintry days and a very cheap healthy vegetarian option.
There is a video here.

More carrots and less coriander is better I think. Potatoes are a good idea to thicken and smooth out the texture. It turns out quite sweet so dish out to kids first and then add plenty of salt & blackpepper

You're supposed to grow up big as well as strong, when fed on wholesome soups and stews.:giggle:

Seriously, I haven't made soups for donkey's years. It just occurred to me the other day when we had a great big bag of carrots from Morrisons for 60p!!

Yes, that's my next one. I have some leeks in the raised bed, so homegrown as well.
Has the veggie season gone well for you?

Good way of getting veggies into kids - my wife purees the soup so they don't know what vegetables they are eating.........

carrot and coriander-yummy-also add a dash of curry powder to it for an extra taste-very nice!

Can't beat fresh mushroom soup

I agree - absolutely. Kids will eat anything that they can dip crusty bread into. :thumbsup:

All my veggies are finished now, the leeks were from mums allotment and absolutely huge! I have set aside one big raised bed for potatoes next year, gonna nip to the police stables for some muck next week :thumbsup:
Carrots were a let down, but runner beans, leeks, parsnips, cucumbers and strawberries were very good this year.

Oh that sounds well worth trying.

I agree but .....
Trickier to make a good one than the average soup though! I remember way way back ending up with a sort of black morass which looked and tasted like ink. I think you need immature mushrooms.:oops:

Yes, I just had one big black pot of carrots which did well; I've given up trying to grow them in the ground. Strawberries as well - I lost the battle against the birds years ago. Handy to have a never-ending supply from your mum and dad when yours are finished.

I don't like much meat but I might just make a gammon and pea soup for the men here.
Nans are always good at that sort of thing - soups and steamed puddings!!

I make soup a few times a week, all depends on what veg we have that needs using and then I will vary it with different beans and pulses. Some completely blended, some partially blended and some not at all blended.

No meat because we are all vegetarian

Mums favourite is my carrot and butterbean soup

I made smoked salmon chowder the other day (found some salmon in the freezer), it was lovely!!!

Btw, you can make soup based around any vegetable quickly and easily, all you need is a few standard ingredients (potatoes, onions), some stock, plus whatever you're putting in. Spinach is surprisingly nice (needs to be blended), especially with a few added spices to give it a bit of a kick!!
