Sunday cook up


Not exactly a bloggable week-end, as busy sorting out the cluttered room so that it can be transformed into a study by Neville Johnson. This involves a lot of moving things out of one room into another (thereby cluttering another room), spending a lot of time going 'Ah! that is where that was', and Freecycling. It is amazing how many freecyclers think they can ride home on their bikes carrying an office chair, or a hoover.

As it is Sunday evening, it is time for a cook-up. So, on the stove tonight:

Mixed Bean and Farro soup: a much lazier version than Locatelli's, because all of it has been bunged in a pot.

Green soup (also known as what is in the vegetable section of the fridge and needs to be made into something asap):
Fry the onions and garlic in Rapeseed oil.
Add herbs (in today's case: thyme; coriander)
Wilt all the greens you have found (in today's case: Pak Choy, spinach)
Add stock, bring to the boil, turn down, simmer and then blitz.

Make sure that a glass of bubbly is close to hand all the while.
