Mr C and I have been sick as dogs the past few days - let me tell you, there's nothing like a bout of food poisoning to counteract any extra poundage caused by Christmas over-indulgence.
Since we're both still so delicate and still lacking in any decent appetite I've been making some warm and cosy soup. Super healthy, super easy and super cheap and a very small bowl is just what's wanted in our fragile state.
Wonderful Vegetable Soup
3 large carrots
1 sweet potato
2 sticks of celery
750ml ish of decent vegetable stock (I use Marigold)
Chop that lot, then bubble in the stock until soft then whizz in the blender (or rather with a hand blender...our kitchen being too petite to house large lovely appliances like blenders)
I end up topping up with extra liquid once I've whizzed it, as it's usually super thick so just dilute as much or little as you like, tasting along the way.
It's seriously one of the simplest most delicious soups I know.
This seems like an opportune moment to post a clip from THE GREATEST SHOW OF ALL TIME (which is, of course, Seinfeld). Behold...the soup nazi
