End of the Larder … Green Soup


People are telling me off with increasing frequency for my lack of writing here at Good Bite In. I’m wondering, can a post on tonight’s dinner suffice? It’s an end of the larder meal. The kind you make when you have an odd mix of food left in the fridge that doesn’t really go together. The kind you wouldn’t boast about, you  wouldn’t serve up at a dinner party, you wouldn’t normally write about but the kind that somehow ends up damn fine and delicious.

Green Soup. Yes, you can tell by the photograph it’s very green. How do you make this? Firstly, it helps if you have a little bit of a cold, as on a balmy evening like tonight that’s probably the only reason you’d want to eat soup. Secondly, it helps if the only things left in your fridge and freezer are green. It’s not much of a recipe really. Whack everything green you have in a pot, in this case celery, peas, spring onions, spinach, watercress, soy beans, brussel sprouts, a vegetable stock cube (green too!) and Bob’s your uncle.  Okay I did add two non-green items – potato and onion – but being that they were the last in the larder, a couple more days and they would have been green too. Then, simmer and blitz. Serve with last few slices of homemade Sourdough if you’re lucky.
