Sometimes I need soup and I need it fast, but a tin just doesn’t really seem like a meal. This is our standard souper-quick dinner. Just mix the ingredients in a pan and heat through and you’ll have a hearty dinner for two.
It’s also great at the end of a hot day when you don’t really want to have the cooker on for long (although souper-husband thought it was a good idea to roast a chicken on the hottest night of the year so far, so I guess this is not a consideration for everyone….)
1 carton “fresh” soup (normally a supermarket “taste-the-extra-finest” one)
1 tin of a “coordinating” soup (for me, normally a “lighter” tomato soup)
Fresh soft herbs
Spinach, mushrooms, sweetcorn to suit
any other garnishes you fancy…
My favourite combinations are:
- Carton of chicken mulligatawny, tin of tomato soup, fresh coriander, spinach
- Carton of Sri Lankan chicken soup, tin of tomato soup, fresh basil, spinach, mushrooms (pictured)
- Carton of bean, corn & chipotle soup, tin of tomato soup, sweetcorn and crushed tortilla chips
- Carton of roast red pepper, tin of tomato soup, fresh basil
Does anyone else do this?! If so, do you have any good combinations to share?
