It was my pick for Martha Mondays and I had chosen what I wanted to do ages ago. Roasted Vegetable Soup – a recipe from Everyday Food which looked quick and easy with all the flavour of autumn in a bowl. I’m in a real nesting stage at the moment and am cheering autumn on daily. Bring out the scarves and gloves – I’m ready!
I added two apples to the vegetables near to the end of cooking.
The soup looked easy. Roast butternut squash, carrots, potatoes and onion and then blend it with some water. I failed to see the seiving part of the instructions, and this meant that the recipe took longer than I would have liked to do. I apologise to anyone who made this and cursed at me – I fully understand – I nearly cursed at Martha!
Despite the soup turning out an ugly browney-orangey colour we enjoyed it. It is certainly healthy with only three tablespoons of oil and no need for vegetable stock. I have some stored to take to work for lunch tomorrow. I will certainly be making this again, but with white onion instead of red so that I can do chunky soup and get away with it (I did give up towards the end and added some of the blitz vegetables to the soup).
