here's a recipe for a really yum soup that warms the belly and melts the heart. it's so bloody easy too, which i love. i'm not bad in the kitchen, even if i do say so myself, but if there's any easier way then your's truly is more than likely going to take it. you can change the vegetables to whatever you have in the fridge. they don't say that in donna hay!
roughly chop some kumara and red onion. place in baking dish and drizzle with 'good' olive oil. roast until soft and slightly crisp. in the saucepan put a quick drip of olive oil and garlic. add baked onion and kumara, vegetable stock, cumin & curry (teaspoon each) and fresh parsely. boil and then whiz until smooth. add one shredded zucchini to soup. top with toasted almonds and yoghurt. serve with dipping bread. yum!
