‘Big Soup’!, originally uploaded by ****Anna****.

This is a fab way to use up leftover soup! Stir into some cooked pasta and even a small amount makes a really filling warm meal, perfect for coming inside to eat after playing in the snow all day!

Brocolli Soup, originally uploaded by Annaelizc.

Here is a mini Christmas celebration meal I made for my Mum and Step Dad, Brocolli Soup and Cheese and Rosemary Bread (followed by Mince Pies – but they weren’t home made as I ran out of time!!!)

I always cook my Chickens in the slow cooker and then, when I have taken the chicken out and carved the meat, I put all the bones back in to the slow cooker and top up with water, a couple of carrots, an onion and some herbs out of the garden. I leave it on low all night and in the morning I have a huge pot of Chicken stock, usually for making home made soup, but is also really nice for Risottos etc

This week I have made Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup.

Ingredients

 Approx 1.5ltrs Chicken Stock, 3  Sweet Potatoes (Peeled & Cut into chunked), 2 Small onions (Peeled & Diced), 1 Clove of Garlic (Peeled and Crushed), A hand full of lentils of your choice (Soaked/washed/cooked according to pack guidelines)

I drained the stock through a muslin cloth and left it to stand so the fat would seperate. After removing the fat I returned the stock to the slow cooker and switched onto High.

In a pan  par boil  the lentils for 10 mins (obviously depends on what kind of lentil you are using)

Then I put some olive oil in another pan along with 2 small onions, 3 Sweet Potatoes and a clove of garlic, put the lid on and left them to sweat until the onion was transparent (Make sure they do not stick/burn!)

Then I added the all of these ingredients to the stock in the slow cooker and left to cook for 3hrs.

Then Puree’d with a hand blender and served with Cheese and Herb Loaf!

Sorry for the awful photos! Forgot to take pictures once it was actually served!
