Vegan Mofo Day 16 - Favourite Late Summer Food - Carol Vorderman's Mediterranean Vegetable Soup from Detox Recipes
My original Mofo theme for this year was going to be Carol Vorderman - Accidental Vegan Hero blogging about recipes from a series of Detox Recipe books that the television presenter and maths whizz put out with nutritionist Anita Bean in the noughties. I'm struggling to fit the posts I'd prepared into the themes but this one seemed to work.
I think this was actually the first recipe I tried from the Detox books and my sister was the one who made it when we used to live together. It's bascially a shed load of Mediterranean veg simmered in stock and then blitzed up in a blender.
There's red onion, courgette, aubergine, red and yellow peppers and fresh tomatoes. I'm sure just looking at all that colourful veg does you good!
The book suggests stirring a spoonful of pesto in before serving but as basil and I don't get on I prefer it without. It's a great all year round soup just brimming with vitamins.
