Carrot and Rice Soup

Nice and easy...

1lb and half Carrots chopped
1 pint and half veg stock or chicken stock
1 Onion chopped
1 tablespoon rice
Pinch of mixed herbs or whatever 'green' herbs you have in the cupboard.
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chopped corriander to garnish (optional)
Little bit of butter or olive oil.

Melt oil or butter in a pan, add onions and cook until translucent but not brown ~ gently does it chef!

Add chopped carrots in and coat with the oil or butter. Butter is best for soups, gives it a nicer taste ~ stuff the calories. :shock:

Pour in stock, herbs and rice. Stir in. Bring to boil and then simmer until the carrots are soft. Should be about 15 ~ 20 mins.

Whizz up with a blender or hand blender and serve. Finish with a little chopped corriander or parsley.
If in doubt ~ use a hammer!

No, you can use my real name, Nat Hall. I really don't mind. This recipe is really an old favourite from a seventies cookery mag that came out weekly to put into volumes. It's actually a brilliant set of recipes from all over the globe, the photography is a little aged in it. But I have never made a duff meal from the collection!

Do you want a pic? I will be making some soup for tomorrow, can take a photo, if you like.
