    Waste Not Want Not Soup

    After a very successful Christmas lunch as usual we found that I had cooked too many vegetables. The selection of left overs were:

    8 Brussel sprouts
    4 carrots
    3 halves of roast parsnips

    Extras required

    Tin of tomatoes
    Olive oil or 1 oz/25g butter
    1 small onion - chopped
    Clove of Garlic
    1 pint/600ml Vegetable stock
    2 tsp Sugar
    handful of ripped fresh basil leaves
    salt & pepper to taste

    Fry chopped onion and crushed garlic until soft

    Place in tin of tomatoes, all the extra ingredients and the left overs into a large saucepan and bring to the boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Add your preferred thickening agent <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> if so required.

    Let the whole thing cool for about 5 minutes and then whizz it in a blender. Return to a cleaned saucepan and warm up again and serve with hot crusty bread.


    I have been told it tastes like mulligatawny soup, but each to there own a lovely soup <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    8 brussel sprouts left over? That would never happen in my house! They are my favourite vegetable.

    When we eat lots of them in our log cabin it is aloud......in your house I imagine they are not allowed <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    > The selection of left overs were:
    My selection varies from week to week, but I concur with your approach.

    I usually have a bowl of stock from my previous meat meal, some rough ends of cabbage leaves or broccoli stalks (can be diced etc.).
    The whole lot gets added to a "taste base" which generally starts off with a couple of onions, fried, dead tomatoes, and any little plastic puches of ketchup or plum sauce that seem to have found their way home from the diner (see <post:=619,519>post 619,519</post:>).

    If I have made one of my rarer purchases of satchels of chicken - 4 thighs with leg for about $cdn2.50 - they get microwaved, sliced, and added.

    Soaking a bowl of dried peas or split peas a few hours before this culinary event helps.

    Is it possible to eat Brussel sprouts without making wind?
    I love them, but I cannot walk near an open flame for days.

    There's always Beano

    This led to a famous comment by my father on seeing the Beano shaker on the table.
    That my mother should refrain from serving food which required an antidote.

    [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] Your'e father has a sharp and amusing intellect.
    however I disagree a tad, the food is not at fault, but the stomach.
    and for us sensitive types, we need all the help we can get.
    I'll look for a generic, I used to read the "Beano" not eat it [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img] Rod.
