Lots of you were spot on yesterday when you asked if I was going to make soup with the lettuces I picked. It's a simple soup .... as most soup recipes are, I don't go for fancy, I go for tasty.
To the 'bolted' lettuces I added the ingredients in the photo above. Split red lentils, a couple of dessert spoonfuls of the bouillon powder and a good squirt of garlic paste. I found this almost used up tube nestled in the door shelf of the fridge when I was cleaning it out on Monday. I don't know how long it's been opened for but I was determined to use it up.
They were simply all popped in a pan with lots of boiling water, brought back to the boil and then simmered in the oven for an hour while I got on with other things.
The kitchen smelt lovely and when the soup came out of the oven it looked luscious.
Once whizzed up I had a litre of soup for very little money or effort .....
.... the only thing was it looked just like the six piles of sick I had cleaned up thirty minutes earlier, deposited all over the house by Mavis, exactly the same colour just not as lumpy :-(
I had toast for lunch!!
