Member recipe by clairefiorentino
A heart warming vegetable soup, perfect for cold winter nights after work.
- 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
- 1 tbsp ginger powder
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tsp garlic granules
- 250g chopped carrots
- 200g chopped swede
- 3 small celery sticks
- 5 small boiled potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 100g green lentils
- 1 Litre chicken stock
- 125ml milk (at room temperature)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Heat a deep pot and dry-fry the chilli flakes for a few seconds until they release their aroma. Then add the olive oil. As soon as it heats up add all the vegetables: potatoes, carrot, swede, celery, and lentils. Also add the garlic granules. Cook until everything is well hot, stirring occassionally so that the vegetables do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
- Add the chicken stock, the milk, the ginger and the salt & pepper. Stir well and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Blend until smooth using a stick blender. Serve hot.
