First I foraged through the fridge, to see what veg was available
I found one and a half carrots, a parsnip and half a swede, oh and half an onion. Perfect soup ingredients.
First I peeled
and chopped my veg, attempting to cut everything into similar sized cubes, to enable even cooking.
I then added 3 of these
To half a litre of boiling water.
I brought the stock to the boil on the hob, then added the veg, I then simmered it all for about 25 minutes, until all the vegetables were soft.
Once the veg was suitably soft, I added half the veg, but all of the stock, to the liquidiser.
If you like a smooth soup, you can add the complete contents of your pan to the liquidiser. Bears like chunks to chomp on, that's why I left half the veg in the pan.
Next, I whizzed up the contents of the liquidiser, I found it was best to use the pulse setting for this stage.
Once my mix was smooth, I added the soup back to the pan, and mixed through the chunky vegetables. My soup seemed a little thick, so I added more stock, until the consistency was more to my liking. I prefer soup to gloop! I added some white pepper, and a little paprika, for a bit of a zing, but you can add any herbs or seasoning to your taste.
Finally, I Served my soup in a pre warmed bowl, with toast. Mmm, enjoy, I did.
With love from the bears.
