easter 2010

I first had this soup made by my late mother-in-law over 10 years ago. It was so tasty I was surprised at how few ingredients were used. It just goes to show you how even the very simplest of combinations can make for a wonderful and satisfying soup.

The recipe produces a fairly thick soup. You can easily add more stock or water if you prefer a thinner consistency, but either way it's sure to be loved by every bunny.

  • Carrot and Cashew Nut Soup
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 500 grams / 1 lb of carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 30 grams / 1 oz of butter
  • 1 potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 large cooking apple, such as a Grannysmith, peeled, cored and diced
  • 600 ml / 1 pint of homemade vegetable stock or broth
  • 50 grams / 2 oz of toasted cashew nuts
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel and finely chop the onion and carrots.
  2. In a large saucepan melt the butter and sweat the onion and carrot until the onion is soft and translucent.
  3. Add enough of the stock to just cover the carrot and onion.
  4. Peel and roughly dice the apple and potato and add to the mixture.
  5. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes until all the vegetables are tender.
  6. Add the cashews and blend until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serves 4
