roasted butternut soup
1 whole big butternut squash (not peeled) deseeded cut into 3in chunks
2 big red onions quartered
3 chillis topped and tailed
1 bulb garlic, trim top of
4 carrotts, cuts into big rounds
bung all above onto roasting tray, smother with evoo, cumin seeds caraway seeds and fennel seeds. bake at 180c for 40 mins or until everything is just starting to caramalize. put 3 organic vege kallo cubes in 1 & 1/2 pint boiling water so it disolves. put everything in a giant pan and leave to cool. when cool, blitz with a hand blender. the veges break down into a smoother pulp when they are cooler! warm through again and serve!
just emailed the local triathlon club for membership advice, will let you know how it goes.
any gossip from anyone?xxx
What's evoo oii? We made a similar roasted pumkin soup last year which was very nice, had a lot of garlic in tho.
I like a soup out of one of the Gordon Ramsey cookbooks that my boyf makes a lot. It's a pea and mint soup, which you then top with small fried off pieces of parma ham, which goes really crispy and salty and tastes really good with the soup.
Morning all - hope everyone is ok.
I am with you on the soup front RLTW and LFC. Heinz cream of tomato soup is my ultimate comfort food - possibly because my mum used to give us this as kids when we were ill.
angel - evoo = extra virgin olive oil
vixx - as with most vege soups they are better off roasted first. i like to bung a load of chilli, salad tomataoes and garlic on a roasting tray and bake them and then whizz up with vege stock and basil. i am fine thank you!
am going for a bike ride with the local triathlon club on saturday to see if i like them and if they like me!
brekkie eggs & spinach cooked in coconut oil. lunch -rocket/small tin tuna/tablespoon evoo. 3pm protein shake/french beans/brazil nuts. dinner salmon/broccoli/pesto sauce/sesame seeds.
Lots to catch up on again.
Think I'm over choccy bars and biscuits, at last.
dd, spooky, heinz tomato was what our mum gave us all as well! Followed by Ambrosia cream rice pudding although she did make her own rice pud most of the time.
Birkmyre nice one on the choccy front

Playing hockey has put a stop on my visits to parkrun for the season might be able to fit one in over Christmas though as we have a few Saturdays without a game.
Have a good weekend everyone - second round of the over 35s veterans ladies all England Cup for me this weekend against Carlise, at home thankfully.
