a lot less salty than most homemade soups as well, and cheaper.
good ol' Heinz.
which is 23% of your recommended daily intake.
How much salt are you putting in your homemade soups, kik?
but every homemade soup i've ever tasted has been very salty, yet at the same time completely bland. Tinned soups are really very nice. They wouldn't sell millions of them a year if they weren't, bud.
Probably using shit stock? I dunno. My soups aren't salty.
And yeah, tinned soups are fine but you can't beat a nice homemade potato and leek.
it's way too much innit.
Too much hassle. And there's a good enough variety of soups out there not to run out.
I had a Morrison's tomato and three bean one today, great taste given it was 40p.
Chop some veg, chuck it in a pan with some stock, simmer, come back half an hour later and blitz it. 100% nicer than any tinned soup (usually), and probably much less salt + other shit.
I'll happily spend ages cooking up really nice food for my evening meals, but when it comes to stuff I associate with lunch... just can't be arsed. It's a really terrible habit. Or is it?
You're better than pretending you make your own soup.
I have one of these.
Of course I make my own soups.
I take them to work in a water bottle. Haven't you HEARD? Everyone went berserk on here when I told them.
Carrot and coriander, let's say.
Fuckload of carrots: 50p
Water: free from the tap
Stock: about 5p
= 75 p for about 10 servings. 7.5p per serving for something waaaay nicer than yr standard Heinz can, which I'm sure is fine.
Contains waaaay less shit than this, for a start.
Mmmm, sodium phosphates.
'What've you got there?'
'7.5p coriander soup for the tenth day on the bounce'
Leftover bolognese today.
Here's one you won't find in the shop, I abso-fucking-lutely guarantee to be a million times better than you can buy and is so easy you should hang your head in shame if you can't be arsed.
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled roughly diced
4 pears pealed, cored, diced
1 large onion peeled, roughly chopped
White wine (optional)
Paprika and cayenne pepper
Fry onion, add SP and pear in a bit for a couple of mins, add stock + spices. Boil 20 mins, blitz. Serve with some creme fraiche on top if you are feeling fancy.
It's amazing. Forgot to mention salt and pepper.
only i add a Twix, a live tuna and a hearty mound of pubic hair.
