Bung it all in and cross your fingers soup

 . . . which is exactly what happened!

I had some manky salad veg that would normally get chucked but, inspired by Economny Gastronomy, I didn't.  This included radish, spring onion, lettuce, tomato and cucumber.  I added half a carrot, a quarter of a small onion left over from something else I was making, some celery, some veg stock powder, a squidge of garlic puree and chilli puree, some salt and pepper and some leftover beef that smelled and tasted fine so I decided to use my common sense.

All this went in Thermione and gott zizzed around until chopped.  Then I added some water and cooked it until everything was soft after which I gave it a thorough blending (one minute at speed 9).  The result is a surprisingly deliciously tasty soup that will do me for some lunches at school this week.  It looks like sludge but I don't care, it's made mostly from stuff I would otherwise throw away and it tastes good so that makes it a winner in my book!  I'm just waiting for it to cool before decanting into single portions.

Photo later when the camera has charged up (if I remember)

  1. It is amazing what you can make with the odds and ends lying around in the fridge. As you say it may not always look too good but who cares if it tastes OK
