let's play hide-and-seek!
I love soup. It is quick and easy liquid meal! Whenever i feel like not having a heavy meal, a warm bowl of soup served with some crusty bread will definitely be at the top of my list. My favorite would be MISO soup! Soup of the day: Pumpkin + Carrot soup!
If i want my soup to be a clear soup for the day, i will boil up a pot of chicken stock, then combining with whatever vegies i need for the day, boil it for few hours before serving with some parleys or pepper.
For a thicker texture of soup, similar like the pumpkin soup i made in this post, i roasted my pumpkin and carrot first then only boil it together with the chicken or vegie stock for 2 hours. Next, the easiest step of all, blend all the liquid and vegies together in a blender, there you have it… a smooth texture of soup, well served with a piece of garlic bread from the oven. I always leave a little portion of the stock a side, in case the blended mixtures is too thick, extra stock would be added in for a better texture.
