Last nights soup tasted even better today 😂 I am so happy that I am now getting back into cooking again and enjoying it.
This was a real simple recipe too Butternut Squash Carrots onion garlic Tomato Puree Cumin Cayenne Pepper Chilli flakes and Vegetable stock.
I sautéed of the vegetables, added to the stock brought to the boil and just left it to simmer for about 40 mins
Using prepared butternut squash and carrots meant so much less hassle for me and time needed in the kitchen. Simple things like this is no laziness for me, it’s a justifiable extra helping hand to make cooking with dexterity issues, chronic fatigue, and pain more manageable.
I’m going to investigate buying precur frozen veg for cooking ..only real frozen vegetable we use normally is garden peas so would be keen to hear how others find them to use and the best ones/places to buy.
I can see a lot more soups, stews and one pot recipes being made by me in coming weeks so hit me with your thoughts and favourites.
I blended it with the stick blender to the consistency that suited us ... might not be to everyone’s taste or preference as many like a really smooth soup.
For me this is another reasonable adjustment to make eating it easier for me with my dexterity issues.
If I keep it chunky more ends up in me than on me 😂 and it’s easy to just shovel it in - Marty Calls it ‘fibrous’ my mother says ‘wile lumpy’ 😂 #homecooking #soup #butternutsquashrecipes #wholesome #cookingwithchronicillness #fatigue #cookingwithmultiplesclerosis #belfast #niblogger #chronicwarrior #chronicillnessblogger
