C-Hardly Healthy Seasoned soups always last me at least 2 days.
Today i added a small knob of butter and some salt and pepper.
I can't believe i forgot to add black pepper! Its my favourite seasoning!
The butter has really smoothed the Chard out, its a bit like adding butter to spinach, it gave it a bit of a lift.
The salt and pepper has set off the flavours nicely, although i think i might have oversalted slightly. Oh well...maybe it'll go right next time!

C-Hardly Healthy

It seems likea long time since i last posted a recipe - i got into sandwiches again!
Todays recipe was inspired by what was in the fridge!
1 onion
1/2 small curly cabbage (i'm sure they have real names, i just don't know what it is..)
Good handful Chard - really good handful!
1 carrot
1 clove Garlic
Small handful Parsley
Small knob butter
1pt veg stock
Boil together the cabbage, the onion and the carrot.
Emty out water and add veg stock, garlic, butter and parsley instead. Give it a good mix.
now add the chard and wilt it down.
Put the lot into a blender and blend - don't blend too much though, you want the chard to stay in good pieces.
Tadaa! Done!
I think that i might be nice to add some double cream to it (single cream splits when hot remember!) to make it a creamy soup. However, i don't have any double cream!
