We've all got lots of different things on at the moment, so instead of postponing Soup and Sandwiches, we decided to have it on a Friday instead.
When I'm reading magazines, if I come across a good soup recipe I tear it out and add it to my recipe folder. The one we had last night was one of these. It came from NZ Gardener.
Kumara and Bacon soup with brie.Ingredients
1 onion diced
1 clove garlic chopped
2 sticks celery
1/2 a leek diced
4 medium kumara peeled and diced
750ml stock ( veg or chicken)
sea salt, pepper
slices of brie
Sweat onion and garlic, celery and leek in the butter until clear. Add Kumara and stock. Bring to the boil. Turn down heat and simmer until kumara is soft. Blend soup until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat to almost a boil. Top with brie and serve.
The sandwiches were Freedom Farms Streaky bacon with baby rocket and mayo in a ciabatta bun.
This was all a raging success.
