Yes I know I’m doing another soup recipe, but it’s cold and who doesn’t need warming up in this weather? By the way, I’m not looking forward to winter! 😦
First off, we need the ingredients. This is another cheap and healthy meal.
- A tablespoon of vegetable stock
- 1 stick of celery
- 4 carrots
- 400 grams of butter beans (Mine are dried, so I soaked mine for a few hours before hand. Tinned are much quicker.)
- Two medium sized potatoes
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 onion
- Sage, parsley and thyme (or whatever similar herbs you have.)
Now get yourself a large sauce pan and fill with water. Place your butter beans in the pan and turn the heat on full.
Now it’s time for the potatoes. Make sure you dice those bad boys first.
Onion and celery are next. Again chopped up nice and small.
The water will be warming up nicely now, so it’s time to add the peeled and chopped carrots.
If you’re a fan of Jamie Oliver’s 15 Minute Meals like I am, you’ll have a garlic crusher. It is my number one time saving device because you don’t have to peel the garlic. 🙂 Add those crushed cloves in baby! (You can never have too much garlic!)
Now sprinkle your mixture of herbs over the top, stir through. Turn the heat down and allow to simmer for about 35 minutes.
I actually put this yummy monster of a soup in a tub and took it to work.
You won’t need bread. This will fill you up with goodness from your head to your toes. Enjoy! 🙂
(The recipe will make two very large portions.)
