couple tablespoons of good Olive or Sunflower Oil + knob of Butter - (not essential)
Regular Round Lettuce - cut off stalk and wash leaves
1 white Onion - roughly chopped
1 largeish white potato - roughly chopped small
garlic - to taste - add this 'freshly squished' at the end*
Vegetable or Chicken Stock
+milk if fancied!
- Saute the chopped white onion and potato in your oil - until transparent(ish)
- Add your selection of lettuce leaves - (maybe some spinach, cucumber, courgette - if you have some leftover in your fridge,) turn all ingredients in the oil and cook for a minute or two.
- Add your stock to well cover the ingredients and cook gently, until all veggies are soft - dont overcook. * If you dont want too strong a taste of garlic, add it to the stock at this stage. Taste for seasoning - bought stock is usually quite salty.
- Liquidise soup - you will need to add some extra stock or milk at this stage to make a nice creamy consistency. Dont add too much at once.
Done! I personally dont like creamy soups, so thick that you can stand your spoon up in them! If you like the taste of nutmeg, you can just add a teeny pinch of this before serving, and also add a blob of sweet cream, sour cream or yogurt.
