cauliflower Soup

Was watching TV, Jamie Oliver’s cooking to be specific, when I got the idea for this soup.

I wanted to step away from the noodle soup we mostly do when we decide on a soup for evening meal.

It did turn out really nice. 🙂

This recipe serves 4
You need:

about 500 grams of culiflower. I had frozen, but I guess fresh would be better, just takes longer to cook then.
water, about 1 liter.
vegetable stock from cube or powder. I have powder and used 2 teaspoons, I think that is about half a cube.
1-2 cloves of garlic
Salt and pepper.
1.5 deciliter of low fat cream (or real cream if you prefer)
A dash of cayenne pepper.
0.5-1 deciliter of chopped parsley. Read the rest of this entry »

Lentil Soup

As I did say here comes the recipe for a lentil soup. Serves 3.

1 deciliter dry green lentils, soak as instructed on package (mine was soak 3 hrs in twice the amount water)
2 tomatoes
1 liter stock, homemade or from stock cube
1 big carrot or two small
1 piece of celeriac (about 0.5 deciliters when cut in small bits

Cut the tomatoes roughly, they are going to be well cooked anyways.
Cutting carrots and celeriac into pieces, size and shape as you see fit, I made sticks.
Put tomatoes and lentils in a casserole, and pour in the stock. Boil for 15 minutes.
Now add in the carrot and celeriac, simmer for another 15 minutes.

Taste and if needed add more salt.
