So, the weather's not getting any better and I never know what to eat when I get home super late from the gym. So I thought i'd make a big pot of soup which will hopefully last me for the week.... Hadn't thought about my parents eating it too so I'll probably be making a new batch of soup soon :)
The soup was okay to make. I've never really made soup before let alone with a double portion recipe, 1 kilo of carrots and cutting up 1 1/2 onions...
The end result though was delicious.
I followed a recipe that I found online, though I must say I did whatever I wanted :p
Here's the list of ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons of oil (to fry the onion in)
- Around 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh ginger
- 3 small garlic cloves (my garlic press didn't work so I just chopped it up real small)
- 1 kilo peeled and chopped carrots
- 5 small tomatoes, chopped
- grated lemon peel
- 3 cups of veggie stock
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-> chop up everything so you're nice and prepared.
-> heat up the oil and simmer the onions --- then add the ginger and garlic
-> once it smells good at the chopped carrots, tomatoes and lemon peel
-> saute for a bit then add the broth mix :)
-> put a lid on the pot and let cook on low heat for about 20-25 minutes (till the carrots are fully cooked)
-> Lastly puree it all together if you please :)
I had a couple of spoons of the soup normally and I have to say I think it tastes better pureed as all the tastes are blended together :)
