I am trying out a soup recipe. The last time I made pumpkin soup, it was a disaster, but Aidan had fun putting the onions into the food processor. For days prior to this he was always asking Mama, I want to cut onions. Today he was doing the 'big one' in the toilet when he heard the very familiar sound of me switching on the food processor. Immediately he called out Daddy, I'm done! So excited he was that he came running half pulling his pants up.
Aidan : Mama, wait for me. I want to cut onions!
Me : Eeww... go wash your hands!
Blended all the veggies, pop them into the pot with six cups of water, some tomato paste (great source of lycopene - great for your man's prostate), a little bit of chicken stock (gluten and lactose free, no transfat), cumin powder, thyme and lemon juice if you like, but I didn't add them, salt and pepper to taste. I didn't add the salt as it was tasty enough.
Reminder : To check Aidan's poo tomorrow.
