So I am well into soup mode! I spent yesterday stocking up my stocks- both chicken and vegetable, so that I could be prepared for when the next soup making frenzy took me. With some of the chicken stock I made the most yummy leek and potato soup, the well flavoured stock made it simply wonderful. I made a cheesy tomato 'swirl' loaf to go with it. A filling and comforting winter dinner.
No recipes, I made the soup up with the usual - sauted garlic and 2 large leeks, chopped, in butter then added stock and lots of potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper,
pureed it when cooked. Simple but stunning, my kind of meal.
The bread is my usual breadmaker dough, rolled out and spread with tomato pesto and cheese, rolled up and popped into a loaf tin and baked at 220C for about 30 mins. I got right into the swirl idea so made a sweet version as well with cinnamon and brown sugar. It's all ready for breakfast in the morning!
