This is the Only Soup recipe you need!

Oh yes! You need this recipe in your head! πŸ˜€

My Mum used to make soup a lot. A great big vegetable soup which we would eat with giant hunks of bread. It was great soup. It didn’t have a name, but it was just called big soup! Dad used to love soup, so Mum made it a lot. I could never replicate the recipe so I decided that making soup was too difficult! Mum still makes big soup! I still don’t! Maybe I should get the recipe from her so I can re-live the wonderful taste at home! πŸ™‚

Anyway, fast forward a few years and I realised that soup was actually quite an easy thing to make and makes the kitchen smell so absolutely delicious! We often have lentil soup and chickpea soup, both are recipes adapted from hubby’s family and our time spent in Turkey.

Recently, I’ve been wanting an even easier option, and unbelievably what I have discovered is the most simple recipe going! Now, we have made this with all manner of vegetables and pulses, so feel free to experiment with whatever you have! I can’t actually believe I am posting this as a recipe as it feels like a bit of a cheat, but it does make the most delicious and the totally easiest (even if you can’t cook you can make this) soup!

Use the base recipe! and customise the rest.

What’s the secret? The secret is passata! That’s it! Passata, water, salt and pepper are the base to this incredible soup! It’s rich, it’s smooth, it’s flavoursome and totally delicious! :p

The first time I made this soup, I was actually looking for a way to cook aubergine without oil. I thought that I would throw it in a pan of water and see what happened, then decided I couldn’t possibly waste it like that, but if I used flavoured water a.k.a. watered down passata, then at least there would be some flavour! It was so freaking amazing! πŸ˜› For the following week I couldn’t get enough of my new found method of cooking aubergine and decided to throw in some other veg at the same time. This was then slightly adapted and hey presto, this so very easy soup was born!

Let’s check out the recipe!

The only soup recipe you need!
