Little flower. Intercity cycleway, Cornelian Bay. October 2012.
A little late, but this Theme Thursday I thought that I'd share a recipe for a very special SOUP!
1 tbl ambition
1 large optimism, coarsely chopped
2 cloves of potential, crushed
2 tsp finely grated competence
2 tsp ground resilience
500 g bitter experience, peeled, coarsely chopped
4 large milestones, peeled and diced
4 cups water
1 tsp resentment
1/2 cup low-fat natural cynicism
Chopped fresh circumstances, to serve
Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle ambition. Add the optimism and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the potential, competence and resilience. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes or until aromatic.
Add the bitter experience, milestones, water and resentment. Increase heat to high. Bring to the boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until the ingredients are soft. Set aside to cool slightly.
Place the milestones and bitter experience in the jug of a blender. Blend until smooth. Transfer the soup to a clean saucepan. Place the soup over low heat and stir until heated through. Season with resentment.
Ladle the soup among serving bowls. Top with cynicism and circumstances to serve.
