Before I start, can I just say: I HATE boring salad. When I see people pretending to thoroughly enjoy their bowl of iceberg lettuce with tomatoes and no dressing, then it honestly makes me cringe. I think it’s stuff like that that’s making many people assume that a vegetarian diet has to be boring and sad. And yet I do believe that some of the most delicious and satisfying meals I’ve ever cooked were actually, well, salads.
Ok, let’s make the world’s easiest and most delicious soup of all times, shall we? I promise you can’t screw this one up; I would even put this past my dad, and he’s the type of person who wouldn’t know how to make scrambled eggs.
I would say this soup is also great for people who don’t actually like soup at all. I always considered soup to be more of a ‘savory drink’ than anything else just because it would never make me feel full – let’s be honest, who has ever found themselves in a food coma after a soup feast (if such thing exists)? Exactly.
I’m a messy chef. My kitchen looks like a bombsite pretty much every time I cook or bake and I have learned a while ago to wear clothes that I’m not too bothered about. But to me, that’s exactly what it’s all about. I love experimenting and being creative and I’m not fussy about following recipes too strictly; I find it far too tedious to be honest. Don’t get me wrong – if I was paid a dollar every time I scrolled through one of my favorite recipe blogs then I wouldn’t have to worry so much about whether I can afford the $2,000 Thermomix or not. The reason I still read recipes is because it inspires me, and it gives me new ideas to try something different next time, however I don’t follow them meticulously because I’m a firm believer that you yourself are your own best chef.
