Soup of the Week
Normality struck the Chazer house again yesterday, when I decided a new batch of soup had to be made.
On Friday on the reduced to clear shelves I managed to find two cauliflowers, (20p each, reduced from £2) some avocadoes, (5p each reduced from 49p) and a packet of beansprouts (6p reduced from 60p). I bought two head of broccoli at 44p each and lugged the lot home together with a heap of other reduced to clear items.
We had some carrots that needed to be used up too so they went into the pile as well. I spiralised the carrots, shredded one each of the cauli and brocc, cooked it all up, fried the beansprouts with garlic and pepper flakes, added a couple of pints of vegetable stock and let it simmer. Later on I'll blend it and see how it all looks. It certainly smelled delicious when I was making it last night. According to the recipe I was vaguely following, it should serve 6 people and I had added extras in there so I might get 8 portions out of it.
I did laugh when I finally peeled all the leaves off the cauliflower though. It's miniscule, really. I don't think I would have paid £2 for such a tiny thing, to be honest. That's it in the image. Totally underwhelming, isn't it?
