What an easy going day, today….yesterday it was a crazy day because of the people coming and going.
Today I did a little nap in the day, listened to some music, playing with the baby on the music-making rail with trains and get some balloons kicking in the air.
Thinking what to write on the blog, because I made so much for the b-day of my son, and of course I wanted to share it all. So yes today it was also a blogging day, wrote many posts and also used a lot of google translate ( sometimes it IS necessary 😉 ).
And putting a lot of time in blogging, it means that there is not so much time for dinner, and I didn’t had much choice in what to use, the leeks were getting old.
Hmmmm soup is easy, it’s fun to make. Soup for me is like something what never can be a nasty taste and which you can experiment a lot ( and can use every vegetable you wish)
So today a nice leek soup with some oven-bread and home-made herb-butter from yesterday
For the soup (4-6 persons)
900 gram of leek cut in slices
2 litres of vegetable bouillon
4 tablespoons apple vinegar
100 ml of soy cuisine
a tablespoon of vegan cream cheese or herb butter
some 4-season pepper
a cooking pan
a wooden spoon
a food processor
some nice bowls for the soup
a plate to put the bowl on top of it
Time to begin!
Put some oil in the cooking pan and slowly heat the oil, when the oil is at good temperature you put in the leek. Just stir the leek for 3 minutes (and also pour the apple-vinegar in it) or something like, till the leek is darker of colour.
Then put the bouillon in the pan and bring it to a boil let stand for 10 minutes and taste. When you like it pour the soy cuisine in the soup and stir well, and now it’s ready to mix in the food processor. Wow the soup smells good and looks good (if you want a thicker soup you can put some potatoes in it while you bring the soup to a boil)
The last step is to pour the soup in a good-looking bowl, take the bread from the oven and lay them next to the bowl with some home-made herb-butter, get some eating flowers from the garden as a garnish. And some fresh parsley or chive in the soup and half a tablespoon of vegan cream cheese or herb-butter
Oh yes and of course you want the recipe of the home-made herb-butter, here are the ingredients just put them all together in the mixing machine. Just taste if you like the taste and be a little creative (maybe some cayenne pepper)
The ingredients of the herb-butter
2 cloves of garlic
150 gram vegan butter
1/2 cup fresh parsley or some dried
4 teaspoons garlic/pepper spice
1 teaspoon oregano
2 teaspoons of basil
2 teaspoons of dill
some juice of a lemon
