I found a great recipe for soup last week and made a batch to take to work to have for lunch with a bread roll. It tasted so great I didn't actually stop to take any photos but I thought I'd share the recipe all the same.
Making soup for work is a good way to get some of your 5 a day in plus you can't beat a hot dinner on a cold, miserable day.
The recipe I used was based on a Rosemary Conley recipe slightly apapted as shown below (tip: no way on God's Earth does this serve 4 people. It was enough for two servings for me).
Serves: 4 (if you're a family of Borrowers)
Per serving: 50kcal
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins
1 teaspoon paprika
smoked garlic - crushed
2 red peppers - finely diced
1 x 175g can of sweetcorn - drained
Pinch of dried chilli flakes
600ml veg stock
cornflour I used regular flour as it's all we had
Preheat your wok on a high setting.
Dry fry the shallots/onions in the wok until soft. Sprinkle over the paprika, add the garlic and cook for 1 - 2 mins stirring well.
Add the peppers, sweetcorn and chilli flakes and stir in the stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer for 2 - 3 mins.
cornflour with a little cold water and add to the soup, stirring well to prevent any lumps forming. Cook for 5 - 6 mins until the soup thickens slightly.
Yum! I would definitely make this again but maybe double the quantities.
