Made a huge pan of soup last night. Have just blended it, it looks and tastes like brown sludge. It is meant to be healthy, but i still want to enjoy it. Will add a bit of salt and pepper and see how that goes, but is there anything else i could try?

What's in it?

AliceandtheGinormousBaps Tue 30-Nov-10 10:53:58

Squash, sweet potato, red onion, small clove of garlic and a lentil/bean mix

A bit of spice might help?

Did you put any spices in it?

Maybe some ground coriander and cumin?

Bet it tastes nice.

A bit of fresh herbage may perk it up - few sprigs of parsley?

Some fresh green veg added at last minute for another bit of colour?

Tin of tomatoes?

No, i have some frozen coriander, would that work?

Ooh blending was probably a mistake, I find that with squash and sweet potatoe it mushes up enough itself. If it tastes good just eat it with your eyes closed grin

I read the thread title as 'My soul is a bit crap, can I save it' so it could be worse grin

Sounds like the sort of thing that could take some chili

I do one with red onion, butternut squash,c arror and pasta which has 2 cloves garlic, thyme and a small chili or 1/4-1/2 tsp dried chili

Was umming and aahing about tin tomatoes.

Problem may be with the lentil mix, it is a bit gritty blush

c arror ??? carrot!

And I don't blend, the squash lives up to its name!

AliceandtheGinormousBaps Tue 30-Nov-10 10:59:29

Yes, think blending it was bad idea, haven't got any chilli

How fussy are the homeless? wink
