The great news is that I’ve gone down another notch on the belt. My shirts feel looser and my trousers felt like they are falling down. So something is going right!
Tonight’s soup is beetroot. Whilst browsing in the supermarket I saw some cooked beetroot. I love beetroot and thought a beetroot soup would be lovely, so wondered about trying it. I searched for a couple of recipes and this one seemed easy enough. I wasn’t going to bother with the croutons or goat’s cheese.
Very simple: soften the onions add in garlic, beetroot, stock and balsamic vinegar and that’s it pretty much done. You only need to bring to the boil and then simmer for a couple of minutes. It’s the quickest soup I’ve made yet!
I think there was too much stock as it was quite watery. I think next time it needs to be thicker so either more beetroot or less stock. It was really yummy. I’m not sure what the vinegar brought to the table though.
If you’d like to suggest a soup for me to try, tweet me @jelly_wobbler.
