Soups are sort of boring…but very nutritious.
I like them anyway.
The question is always the same: what would you have them with? Well, I would say something crunchy like bread and something uplifting to watch. I like having soups with ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’. The gang running an Irish pub called Puddy’s Pub in Philadelphia always cheers me up. They are a manipulative, dishonest, egotistic bunch, just like everyone around you is trying to be but not always succeeding. Because being selfish, lazy and ignorant is one thing but manipulative, unethical and good at it is something else. Watching the gang’s shenanigans and questionable behaviour gives me comfort. I feel almost like they are my family, and honestly, I would love to be a part of their gang, because they are really entertaining. I would rather be surrounded by a lively, openly dishonest and selfish group than people fancying themselves as a gentle and delicate flower and then stabbing you with the most insensitive comment.
Peas and Kale Soup:
4 cups peas (you can use frozen)
200 g kale
3 tbsp olive oil
1 l water
1 l vegetable stock
1. Wash and cut into 2 cm pieces leeks. Heat olive oil in a pot. Add leeks. On a low heat sweat them until soft.
2. Add cubed potatoes and carrots. Fry on a low heat for 5-10 minutes. Add stock and water.
3. Simmer till vegetables start getting soft. Add peas and kale. Simmer until all the vegetables are soft. Add salt and pepper.
4. Carefully liquidize your soup in a blender (or using hand blender). If your soup is too thick, add more liquid. Add parsley. When serving, add a handful of rocket onto your plate before pouring your soup. Enjoy! And be a Dayman.
