As I was going away this weekend I didn't think I would have time to participate in Dom's Random recipe challenge this month. He has teamed up with Jac from Tinned Tomatoes (who you have met on my blog before in this post and this one) and her challenge no croutons required. The challenge this month is soup!
2 carrots, peeled
1 leek, chopped
3 mushrooms, chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 tbsp balsamic vinger
1. Put the tomatoes, whole onions, carrots and garlic together in a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, salt and pepper and roast for 35 mins at 180C
2. Meanwhile make up the stock and cook the mushrooms and leek in it.
3. Take the roasted veg out of the oven. Put everything in a big pot/blender. Chuck in the parlsey, salt, pepper, other herb and balsamic vinegar in.
4. Blend in the blender or with a hand blender. Add more water until it reaches the consistency you are happy with.
5. Eat or slurp!
I had this soup on two days:
Day one - I added some wholegrain rice, I just love rice in soup.
Day two - I didn't add rice but topped with toasted wholegrain bread and cheese (obviously in full on feeling sorry for myself mood!)
Feeling much better now and am already planning another weekend to make up for the lost one!
