Soup is definitely my favourite lunch – especially since I started to experiment with flavours that I wouldn’t necessarily have put together in the past!
Last week I tried a curried swede soup after I found a 500g pack of ready prepared swede in Asda reduced to 37p, to be honest though, the full price was only 50p so it’s well worth the money anyway if you ask me. I bought it with the intention of using it as a cottage pie topping instead of mash but the kids looked horrified at that so I googled ‘swede’ and ‘soup’ for a bit of inspiration.
Curried swede soup was definitely the most popular recipe on there but most of the recipes I could find called for ingredients that I didn’t have in or the addition of cream or milk which I really wanted to avoid.
In the end, I went my own simple way and this is what I came up with….
How to make curried swede soup
500g swede chopped into cubes
2 carrots sliced
1 tsp mild curry powder (I like it spicy so I do put more in usually)
2 vegetable stock cubes
Making soup couldn’t be easier in my soup maker, I just added the veg, sprinkled over the stock cubes and the curry powder and topped up to the 1.6 litre level with boiling water.
I set it off on the smooth function and 21 minutes later, lunch was ready….
It’s such a warming lunch for a cold day (or any day actually) and if I wasn’t on Slimming World then it would be made even better by the addition of a crusty bread bun. 😉
