I am not going to try to fool you into thinking that I am some master chef because I have managed to rustle up some soup. A recipe that wasn’t even my own. However, I have been making this particular soup for a while now. Forcing family members round to try it. I finally feel as though I have pinned the process down into a perfect cheap, easy, winter warmer that you should all try.
I am not one to cook often. I like simple things in every sense of the word. Simple to make, simple to eat, simple to wash up. Pasta and a bit of pesto are all I need. When a recipe this easy and tasty comes along I like to share them. I have a post here on easy carb free pancakes and spaghetti. So I thought I would share this little gem with you too so you can feel like Jamie Oliver this winter too.
- 1 x Veg stock cube (I used chicken because it was in my sister’s cupboard)
- 1 x tinned tomatoes (I used the one with added herbs because I thought extra seasoning could do no harm)
- 2 x carrots
- 1 x medium sweet potato
- 1 x red onion ( I have used a white onion twice before and noticed no difference)
- 2 x red peppers
- 1/2 tin of coconut milk (I used reduced fat, old habits)
- Salt, pepper, and chilli flakes (you choose how much)
I don’t think that is how you go about listing ingredients but I am sure you will all understand.
- Fry the chopped up red onion and red peppers up in a frying pan
- Boil the stock in a big casserole pan (I am sure people who know their way around a kitchen have a real name for this)
- Peal and chop the two carrots and sweet potato and add to the stock, also adding in the fried red onion and peppers.
- Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, mixed chillis, salt and pepper then leave to boil until vegetables are soft
- ( I do have a soup maker so I can just through it all in and leave it to make all of the soup but I like to feel like I have had some input)
- Once soft blend all the soup up and bring back to the hob to heat through whilst adding the coconut milk.
- Serve with a warm bread roll and sit there smugly because you now feel like the next Jamie Oliver.
