Mud – and I’m not talking pies.

July 3, 2012

It rained all day. The only saving grace was that Arlo was feeling ill so he didn’t go to school which meant I didn’t have to cycle in the rain along the  inaptly named cycle path. My cycling coat is covered in mud. My wellies are covered in mud.  My bike is covered in mud. Mud, mud, mud. (I’m sure there’s a song there.)

I opened the last of the Stephen donated Tideford soups today – carrot and coriander. What a beautiful sunny yellow colour! Of the three we’ve tried, it’s the one I could envisage eating on its own with no additions. It was a little thin, but then as a soup for summer that’s OK. The coriander was nicely judged too.

However, there wasn’t enough for us all to have a bowl each, so it had to be stretched. The flavour was compromised a little, but I managed to retain much of the colour. It would have been very sad to reduce it to mud.

I fried some tofu which had been patted dry,  chopped into slices, dipped in gram/chick pea flour in a little olive oil until golden and set this aside while I finely chopped a red pepper, a couple of mushrooms – but not the really dark field ones – and a spring onion which I fried in some olive oil.

When the veg was soft I added the tofu and the soup and warmed it through. Nice with warmed French bread and a garden salad.
