Instead of wasting the ingredients or being patient enough to wait until tomorrow when I could go and get an Aubergine, I decided to just make a soup. I have taken a quick snap of it whilst it's cooling in a large Tupperware container, so it's a little basic - no prizes for presentation here!
1 x large courgette
1 x large white onion
1 x small butternut squash
1 x large green pepper
1 pt of Stock (I used Chicken)
1/2 tin chopped tomatoes
Squidge of tomato puree
Sprinkle each of Cayenne Pepper, Paprika and Ground Cumin (adapt to your taste buds)
Generous grinding of black peppercorns
Chop the veg, throw it all in a large pan, give it a stir, bring to the boil and reduce to a simmer for around 40-50 minutes. Stick it all in the blender and voile a, spicy veggie (mostly of the Ratatouille variety!) soup. Makes about 8 cups worth. Tastes absolutely amazing and for those out there who might be following Weight Watchers, this bad boy is zero pro points! Plus it's a really frugal way to use up any old veggies which may be on there way to veggie heaven... AND a fraction of the price Supermarkets charge for their own soups.
Do you make your own soup? What's your favourite recipe?
