My soups are of the chuck it all in and see what happens type, occasionally one stands out and I write it down so I can repeat it, I know a lot of folks on here like their homemade soup so thought I'd share this one.
Carrot, Corgette and Chickpea : I cooked 5 medium carrots and one large corgette in the electric steamer ( add corgettes when carrots got 15 mins left) . using powdered spices I heated 1 level tsp coriander, 1 level tsp mild chili, and 1/2 tsp turmeric in about 1 dessert spoon olive oil for a couple of minutes, then added one of those tetra paks of drained chickpeas and cooked them on a very low heat so they were covered in the spices. Then I added the veg and a little of the stock from the steamer, blitzed it with a hand blender, and used more stock to get to the consistency I like ( quite thick just add more stock if you like it thinner) then stirred in 10g creamed coconut ( measure carefully as it's hugely calorific!) this made 3 portions for me, I totted up calories as I went along and it comes out as approx 200 per portion. Just had one portion with a slice of rye bread with Brie totalled approx 420 cals all in, and I've got two more portions to take to work this week. It came out a lovely warm orangey colour and very comforting ☀️
