I must say, that I never cook soups using a recipe. That’s because I usually cook soup as a way of using up all the dribs and drabs in the fridge. So on this cold winters night, I had 2 potatoes and 2 onions which were not looking shiny and brand new but still had the potential for creating a nutritious soup to warm me up.
We created this blog, to try and inspire people to get adventurous, take risks and show that you don’t have to stick to a strict recipe. So, to inspire you I will show you what I threw into my soup pot. Then, you can use this as a guide to create your own delicious and nutritious soup!
1 litre chicken stock
2 large potatoes (washed, peeled and chopped into cubes)
2 large onions (peeled and cut into quarters)
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon chia seeds (optional) to add fibre
1 teaspoon curry powder
- Throw all ingredients into a large pot.
- Simmer on medium heat until potato and onion are cooked through (approximately 20 minutes).
- Blend until smooth.
I bet you didn’t think it would be that easy did you!
What would you throw in? Some sweet potato? Some leeks perhaps? Maybe some pumpkin or lentils?
Serve and enjoy!
Stay happy and healthy…The NG.
