Yeah, just less salty. I used two cups of broth/stock and two cups of water.

Dinosaur kale!

This looks beautiful, Rachel. I'm all about mushy red lentil soups these days. Thankyou.

No, it's more like a chewy savoy cabbage. Goood stir-fried with chilli and thrown in with some pasta.

that soup sounds amazing! i might make that tomorrow.

i am a huge fan of kale. we used to have loads of it in soup when i was a kid, but i haven't had the curly kale for years. i think all the stuff i have had lately has been cavolo nero, which is indeed amazing with some chilli and pasta.

Baked kale chips, for which there are a million recipes to be found on the internet, are really nice! They somehow manage to taste a bit like tempura broccoli without all the fuss of making a tempura batter.

No recipes for you or anything, but I would like to put on record my appreciation of Mulligatawney.

Soup AND curry in the same can, packet, bowl, etc. What kind of a genius idea was that!

Just need to find some sticky toffee pudding chunks in there and that's three courses taken as one. Happy face.

I was buying my soup rations for the week and picked up Mulligatawny. 'Oh', I thought, 'Here's that soup that has the funny name which I've never tried before. I wonder how it's described?'.

The description could be summarised as 'soup and curry' and I had no choice but to drop the can in horror. Soup AND curry?!! There is no way, in this world, that such a combination works.

You mean like daal? I have a not-very-amusing story about an argument I witnessed about daal/soup. Some Anoraks have heard it. Lucky buggers.

But it does, it does. Better than you'd dare imagine.

Minestrone for lunch today, mind. And there again - soup and pasta in the same can. Genuis x2!

Ye verily Minestrone and Mulligatawney are the Sugababes versus Richard X of foodstuffs.

It was mulligatawney soup at work yesterday - definitely one of the best ones they do here. I'm just on my way to get today's offering - I bet it's something rubbish like Watery Tomato.

There's not much better than a stonking mulligatawny soup. UNDERRATED.

I'm gonna make me some curried parsnip soup this weekend.

I shouldn't have mentioned it, it's so lame.

I was at the infamous Bhelpoori House in Angel and this middle-aged posh type asked one of the guys for a bowl. He replied they didn't have any bowls and what did she want a bowl for? 'The soup' she replied. He told her they didn't sell soup. 'yes you do, it's there.' He explained it was daal and that you just spoon some over rice, you don't eat it like soup (because it's not soup). This went on for some time before she said 'To me it's soup and I want a bowl!' I don't think she stamped her foot, but she may as well have. The poor guy had to tell her one last time that they didn't have any bowls to give her as they didn't have soup on the menu...

I'll let you have that one. Maybe I should enter the world of Mulligatawny Madness.

Hmm, daal. I can see her point in a way. I'm not a fan of daal that's too watery. I like to eat it with a fork.

I really should start making my soups for the week, instead of buying boring Heinz. But I only know how to throw chunky root veg in a pan with a stock cube. The last time I tried to go all-out (cauliflower soup) it disappeared out of the bottom of my blender and onto the kitchen floor.

I'm loving Uncle Ants the Soupmaker.

I'm typing all the recipes into my weight watchers and they're ticking all the boxes. Can't wait to try the sweetcorn and potato chowder.

Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!



- Lewis Carroll

(and sort of recited by some of the strange characters on the splendid KateGoes album)
