And Salad Soup : )

This is a discovery I’ve been thinking about making for some time and today, I made it.  Both the soup and the discovery.

It’s very very simple (like all my favourite discoveries but unlike many of them, it works!)

You’ve got this big bowl of left over salad see, and maybe a little bit of tomato salad on the side and if you’re very lucky, a spoonful of last night’s parsley sauce.  So you put some oil in a saucepan, fry and sweat the salad a bit (I doubt if it matters what’s in it – well, hardboiled egg might not be so good).  Then you add the tomato salad with its juices and marinade and stir in the parsley sauce (I have to say, that’s a real bonus) top up with not too much water and season a bit, bring to a simmer for ten minutes or so and then whizz it up with a blender.  If you need a bit more, you can add some stock.

Nice.

Now I have to go and cook curry.
