Every day I have eaten carrots, but I still have a lot left, 2kg is a big bag. As I mentioned I am going away for a few days so the carrots need to be cooked and either eaten or stored. I have tried freezing raw carrots and they end up a bit rubbery, so this time I thought I would make carrot soup and freeze that.
Rinse, top and tail, and chop up loads of carrots, add two chopped onions. Put them in my biggest pan and add water. Oh dear, the pan isn't big enough.
Transfer them to a bigger pan. This is one I found in a skip if you remember. The majority of the stuff I found went to charity shops, but I kept this stainless steel pan for myself, and it has come in usefull. Not bad for free, ha ha.
Anyway, add garlic granules, turmeric, and mixed spices. I have used a spice packet from the Enchilada box, as there seems to be far too much to use for it's original purpose. Everything gets used up here.
Boil it till the carrots are soft, it smells nice. Then transfer to the Kenwood and mush it up. It has made nine pots of carrot soup for the freezer. I have used old potato salad pots. These are not microwavable so it will have to be transfered to dishes that are, for re heating.
I can eat this as soup with some tasty bread, or I can add it to stews. I might bulk it up with sweetcorn or peas for a lunchtime snack. Job done, my own healthy soup at a fraction of the cost of buying it.
