I love that I can throw a lunchtime soup together quickly without the labour-intensive chopping that usually comes with making soup. I find it so boring, standing in the kitchen chopping for what seems like forever.
I didn't even have to chop an onion to make this soup! How good is that?
It was just as well too as I was home alone and making soup for just myself. We had plans for the evening so there was little point in making a big batch.
I turned to the freezer and my trusty blender for my green soup for one.
It was so fresh and spring-like, not to mention quick.
I selected my frozen vegetables, some spring onion, herbs and spices, then threw them into my blender with some hot vegetable stock, hit the button and stood back and admired how quickly my 9400 turned it into a silky smooth delight.
I served it with some crisp crackers for some crunch. Not for dunking mind, just for crunch.
Now I say this is soup for one, but it's a greedy portion. You can definitely go back for another ladleful and you'll want to. Did I mention how fresh this tastes?
