Mushroom Coriander & Lime Soup ๐Ÿ„ ๐ŸŒฟ ๐Ÿฅฃ

You can use fresh or bottled ingredients for this, you work with what you’ve got. You can also substitute lime for lemon if you’d like.

Shit you’ll need:

  • 300g chopped mushrooms or equivalent in canned or frozen.
  • 2tblspns lime or lemon juice. You can also include the zest if you’re using fresh fruit.
  • 2tsp dried coriander, or equivalent.
  • 500ML vegetable stock.
  • 1tsp salt.
  • 1tsp powdered garlic.
  • A chopped onion.
  • 2tsps cracked black pepper.
  • 2tblspns olive oil.
  • 1tblspn of Worcester sauce.

You can either either enjoy this soup blended or chunky. Everything can go in all at once into your slow cooker for around ninety minutes on auto. It also works well served over rice if you choose not to whizz the fuck out of it, or enjoyed from a large mug if you do.

If you want a creamier soup, add a can of coconut milk, or your desired equivalent.

Lemon & Rice Soup ๐Ÿ‹ ๐Ÿš ๐Ÿฅฃ

I am approaching the end of my November soup challenge. I did use previously posted soup recipes as part of the thirty days, but I will admit I have enjoyed creating mess in my kitchen and having soup at the end of it. Yesterday I used pasta, and today I’m using rice. Lemon is bloody lovely in savoury dishes, and this mishmash is inspired by asian cuisine, and I cannot wait to shove it in me gob.

Shit you’ll need:

  • 2cups of rice, doesn’t matter if it’s long grain or basmati, use whatever you have available.
  • 4tblspns of concentrated lemon juice.
  • 2tsp dried flaked chilli.
  • 1tsp salt.
  • 1tsp ground ginger.
  • 1tsp garlic.
  • 1tsp cracked black pepper.
  • A chopped onion.
  • 2tblspns olive oil.
  • 1ltr vegetable stock.
  • 1 can of coconut milk (400g).

If you have fresh lemons, you could grate and add the zest into the mix, but I don’t so I’m using concentrated stuff.

Add everything to your slow cooker aside from the coconut milk. Allow it to cook through until the rice is softened, it will take a couple of hours most likely on auto. Add the coconut milk, and allow to heat through for another half an hour. If you want a spicier soup, increase the amount of chilli you use, or add some other hot stuff of your choosing. It’ll produce a beautifully aromatic and spicy filling soup.

Curried Banana Soup ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿฅฃ

Not gonna lie. I’ve never made banana soup before. I’ve put banana in vegetable curries before, along with mango and courgette, and it’s worked really well, but not just soup. So here we fucking go..

It doesnโ€™t look like much, BUT BY GODS IT IS FANTASTIC.

Shit you’ll need:

  • Some ripe bananas. I mean this shit isn’t going to work without them. I used four of the buggers.
  • A chopped onion.
  • 500ML vegetable stock.
  • 1tsp salt.
  • 400ML can of coconut milk.
  • 1tsp garlic.
  • 1tsp garam masala.
  • 1tsp turmeric.
  • 2tblspns olive oil.
  • 2tblspns of lemon or lime juice.

You will also need a blender/hand blender/food processor-y whizzy thing. Yes that’s a technical term. Don’t argue.

This is also a bit fiddlier than other sooooooops. You will need to pre fry your onions in the olive oil and seasoning, spices, and your lemon or lime juice. When they have softened and caramelised, peel and chop your bananas. OBVIOUSLY you need to peel them first because well you’re going to look a bit daft if you don’t. Add the chopped bananas to the mix in the frying pan, and let the spices absorb and soften them a little.

Transfer the frying pan contents into your slow cooker, and pour the stock on top. Turn it up to high, and let it heat through until it starts to bubble. Once that happens, shove the contents into your whizzy thing with the coconut milk, and blend until smooth. You can then return it to the slow cooker, and allow it to heat on low until you’re ready for it. This will produce a thick satisfying soup.

Serve with a handful of flaked almonds on top, which are totally optional, duh.

Do It Your Fucking Self Furniture Polish ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Silicone furniture polish can really bugger things up. Over time, it leaves a hazy build up on your stuff, and they will end up looking dull and lifeless. Yes I realise lifeless is a bit of a stupid way to describe an inanimate object, but I’m a bit bloody tired right now. ๐Ÿ˜›

OBSERVE:

I also realise I’ve been a bit lazy and transplanted screenshots from other social media here, but that’s because sometimes too many words are not necessary, and yet, here I sit typing too many words. ๐Ÿ™„
