A lovely veggie soup/stew

    By chance I saw one of the "Nigel Slater's simple suppers" programmes the other day and he made this

    from here http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/nigelsadaptablebeans_92230.shtml

    It is absolutely DELICIOUS... I served it with freshly baked soda bread instead of ciabatta.

    Obviously the orange peel, parmesan rind and bay leaf are removed before serving. I didn't have any chards - not quite the season - but it was delicious all the same. I also put chicken cut into cubes in it as I have a hungry, meat loving husband. It is still a very "healthy" recipe and really worth trying.

    Sounds very yummy and healthy Katharine :bigsmile: I had to look up what chard was :lol: here we call it silverbeet :)

    With winter coming up for me I will be trying it out - it's still very hot here :shrug: 30C here today!

    Already!!! That was fast :lol:

    Yes it is lovely and, for a soup, incredibly refreshing. I think it's the orange. It's also SO easy to cook; even within my ability!

    It does sound good. I find I prefer the carrots done on my mandoline using the julienne blade. I am not a fan of cooked carrots, so this way I get the benefit of them, without having a large mouthful of them.

    Katharine, would you share your soda bread recipe? Pretty, pretty please? I've not made it before, but am very interested as I love that type of recipe. Having to keep to a gluten free diet, I can convert if needed, but need a good recipe to start with.
    If it is a yeast recipe, do you have the table to convert from metric to "American?" If not, I'll have to "google" it. Thank you very, very, very much!!!!!!!!!!!

    To make/keep this vegetarian, could add in extra firm tofu cubes.

    I find I far prefer to grow the white chard, as the rhubarb [chard] bleeds so badly. The white does away with this problem. I also prefer to the golden beets as they don't bleed either and have a more mild/sweet flavor. Personal preference. Both these are easy to grow. Lily, most chard can be grown over the winter as long as the ground doesn't remain "heaved" for long periods. Plant a fall crop in late summer/early autumn.

    The soda bread recipe is already on the site Sally :) There is no yeast in soda bread just bicarbonate of soda and some baking powder (I'm not sure this last is in all recipes but I use it). All the measurements are in "spoons' :lol:
