Do you like soups? Balazs and I live for thick, creamy and rich soups. You know those that make your specs steam up with the first spoonful and bring back those awesome childhood memories :)
So on Saturday after a few days of me (gently) hinting that it’s time for yet another soup-day, Balazs whipped up the one above. It was probably one of my all-time favourites! Best part? It was done totally from scratch as whenever Balazs cooks, he doesn’t use recipes, he just mixes things in the pot like a witch and comes out with something amazing. I’m always so jealous of his cooking instincts.
Anyway, he basically just used a bigger fresh soup-veggie-bag of white and orange carrots, a part of cabbage, an onion, 2 peeled cloves of garlic, half of celery root and the leaves + water. He also added pepper, salt, cumin, celery seeds, thyme, dry parsley, a dash of this chili paste, two of those tiny but of so spicy dried chili peppers and a stock cube. That is it! He simmered it all in one pot for up to 2 hours, and then blended it. All natural, healthy and full of goodness.
That morning, we bought some cheese bread sticks and enjoyed it while listening to Miles David's King Of Blue in the background. Ah, wish every Saturday could be just like that! How was your weekend? xo
P.S: Fancy more soups? How about this one, this one, oh and this?
P.P.S: You can buy the fresh-veggy-bag on the farmers' market or your gorcery store and you can get the chili paste and the chili peppers in your local Asian food store. That is where got ours.
