(Thanks @chef_grl for inspiring me to write a post again, even if it's just a quickie with a phone snap. Hope you like the soup)
End of term.
Fridge full of scraps
Lots of deadlines
No-one wants to leave the house to shop.
I scrounge around the cupboard and the fridge, and find
1 bag of carrots
half a thingy of cream
and that’s about it.
I have flour and yeast in the cupboard, a naartjie in the fruit bowl, and 6 hungry, busy mouths to feed.
Cinnamon and Naartjie Carrot Soup
1 leek (all I had, but I’m sure an onion will do great)
1 bag of carrots, peeled and chopped
abour 3- 4 cups water.
1 spoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Fry the leeks in hot oil
Bang in the carrots.
Add the water, and the whole naartjie. Cook until carrots are soft.
Remove the naartjie, let it cool a little then peel and add the segments to the soup.
Blend with a hand blender, add cream, cinnamon and sugar and season well with salt. Serve piping hot.
I made huge breadsticks to go with mine, (a basic 4 cup flour dough divided into six long breadsticks and baked), and we didn’t even need spoons.
Full bellies and happy hearts <3
