Fuck Off Covid Soup

Cooking Time: Who cares - you're in ISO...

Difficulty: Easy

Serves: A good few bowls fo sho!

Ingredients

  • 6 x carrots (peeled & chopped into rough chunks)
  • 1 x cauliflower (chop into bite-size florets). Biff stalk & leaves
  • 1 x head of garlic (separate into individual cloves - removing excess outer layers of skin
  • Thumb size knob ginger - roughly chopped into 4 chunks (this is just to infuse some ginger flavour & warmth)
  • 4 x tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 x tablespoon curry powder 
  • 1 x teaspoon salt
  • 1 x tablespoon ground turmeric 
  • 1 x teaspoon black pepper
  • Half x teaspoon red pepper chilli flakes
  • 2 x cups coconut milk
  • 2 x cups either chicken or veg stock
  • 4 x tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 bay leaves 
  • 1 x teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 x teaspoon ground coriander
  • Lucky Taco Chilli Salt - season to taste whilst soup is cooking - you may want to add some more cracked black pepper too.

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºc.
  • Place veges, garlic & ginger onto a large baking tray and toss with the oil, curry powder, salt, turmeric, black pepper, and red pepper chilli flakes.
  • Roast the veges for abour 30-40 mins until veges are soft inside and beginning to brown and crisp on the outside. 
  • Remove veges from the oven and leave to cool. REMOVE & DISCARD GINGER.
  • Once veges have cooled, rummage through & squeeze all the garlicky goodness outta their paper skins (biff the skins) then add all ingredients from tray into a food processor & blitz (or use stick wand) with the coconut milk, stock & tomato paste. Blitz until no large chunks.
  • Pour mixture to a large pot. Add bay leaves, ground cumin & coriander & a shimmy of Lucky Taco Chilli Salt. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat, cover with lid & simmer for about 10 - 15 mins. Leave to cool slightly. 
  • Taste! Taste! Taste! Does it need extra seasoning or a squeeze of lemon? You decide! I use a stick wand & give it a final blitz until smooth in the pot. Sometimes adding a little water if too thick - just tweak as to how you please.
  • I like a wee bitta fresh coriander on top - a sprinkle of any old cheese you have lay about the place & some toasted pumpkin seeds.
    Go wild! Add whatever you like! Enjoy the goodness!
