This month’s recipe roundup is hosted by Melanie at Motherhood Apologia and the theme is freezer recipes.
You could say this theme is like a red rag to a bull as I double-up and freeze almost every meal I make. Some would call me organized but I think of myself more as lazy, wouldn’t you rather make a meal once than twice?
Anyway as I refuse to sit all night and type in a host of recipes I freeze I have chosen just one which was given to me by a friend.
Farmhouse Vegetable Soup
(Give to me by a Farmers wife – so it is authentic 😉 )
This is a good soup to freeze as if you don’t like your soup thick you can add more water to it when you are re-heating it. Personally I’m a thick person 😉
1 cup of soup mix
2 stock cubes
6-8 stocks of celery
6-8 small leeks or 4 large leeks
And that’s all she gave me!! – She didn’t tell me what to do!! She obviously didn’t know I’m the type who follows a recipe to a T.
Regardless I just chop it all up, stick it all in the saucepan, cover it with water and simmer it as low and long as you can.
Hope it works!
