Jamie Oliver's store-cupboard soup
« on: May 26, 2011, 10:26:26 am »
Store-cupboard soup
4-6
Fresh ingredients
6 rashers smoked streaky bacon, chopped
2 red onions, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
3 celery stalks, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
A few flat-leaf parsley sprigs, chopped
Bread, to serve
Store cupboard ingredients
Olive oil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried chilli, crumbled or 1/2 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 cup (200g) red lentils ( a mxture of red and green is nice)
1 vegetable stock cube (replace with vege stock concentrate from TMX)
400g can cannellini beans, drained
EVOO
Preparation:
Place a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add a glug of oil, then bacon. Slowly fry for 6 minutes, until the bacon has started to release its tasty fat.
Chop carrot in TMX (I chop the carrot on its own first), followed by onion, celery stalks, garlic cloves in together.  
Add thyme, chilli, onion, carrot, celery and garlic to bacon. Cover and gently cook for about 15 minutes until softened.  Add lentils and 1 litre (4 cups) water and 1 tbsp vege stock concentrate.  Bring to the boil and simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes until softened.
Add beans and if the soup is a little thick add some more water.  Bring back to the boil and simmer for another 10 minutes, then taste and season if necessary.
Ladle into bowls and finish with a drizzle of EVOO and the parsley.  Serve with the bread.

Tips/Hints:
Can add some dried porcini mushrooms.  Also, if  using the dried chilli flakes just be aware that this gives the soup a real kick and children might find it a little spicy. This is really quick and easy, and a great starter for a dinner party in the cold weather.

Cookie1 has written Thermomix directions for this soup - thanks cookie.

I made this last night Kezza and we enjoyed it immensely.I altered the method quite a bit, I hope you don't mind. I'll put my method below in case anyone wants to use their TMX more.

1. Chop vegies in TMX and set aside.
2.Cut up bacon, add to bowl, cook with oil 3 minutes, speed 1 100 degrees.
3. Add vegies and all other ingredients except the beans. Cook 30 minutes on 100 degrees, speed 2 or 3.
4. Add beans in the last 10 minutes and use reverse.

I served it with Cheese Biscuits with Herbs from the Travelling with Thermomix book. Will post a review of these.

Cookie 1, thank you so much for giving TMX instructions. I only realised after making the soup that it all could be done in thermie, but wanted to post it because it is so yummy.  I'm glad you enjoyed it.

After copying the recipe in May, I finally got around to making this today.  :-))

Really enjoyed it Kezza, thanks so much for posting.  ;D  I made some of Chookie's no fuss rolls to go with.  ;D

Cookie & JulieO - how come the colours & textures of this soup are so different  ???

Judy, I used veg stock concentrate with water as the stock and instead of using chilli flakes I used a heaped tbs of Tikka paste (TM) that I had in my fridge which is what probably changed the colour.  I used the TM to chop the veg but cooked it in my pressure cooker (7 mins).  :)

Probably the Tikka paste, as I used vegie stock too. You had me worried there Judy.

I just thought it strange Cookie that one version was red and the other green - thought there had to be an explanation.

So pleased you enjoyed this JulieO and hat's off to cookie for TMX conversion.  My soup looks more red than green when I make it too, but I didn't add tikka paste, just the chilli flakes.  I love Jamie Oliver because his recipes are so ' doable' for those of us at home and his enthusiasm just rubs off on you. :)

It's not the Spinach and Potato soup from Full Steam Ahead is it Cookie?
