Its worth remembering that I’m married to a vegetarian (who might eat the odd prawn every now and then). Her favourite culinary creation is soup, primarily because we otherwise would live off a diet of chocolate puddings and pies.
Her carrot and potato soup is extremely good. I am no good at soup because I cannot stop adding things to it while I’m making it. For perfect carrot and potato soup you will need:
- One large potato, peeled
- Four or five carrots, peeled
- One large onion, finely chopped
- Vegetable stock
Fry the onion in butter then add the veg and continue to cook. Add the stock, season and boil until soft.
Now transfer to a jug and whizz until you get a nice thick puree soup!
Avoid dropping the wedding ring into the creation
Now serve. If you are sensible you will eat this with just a grind of pepper. If you are me you will have to include bread and cheese.
