So, I'm not really one for memes too often. If I get tagged I do them because I don't like to offend.
Today, though, I came up with a meme I'd really love to see happen (probably has already, but that's beside the point) and so I introduce the:
Here's the deal. I'm going to post a soup recipe that I've tried out and I'd recommend.
Then I'm going to tag some people, so they can post a soup recipe that they've tried out and that they like. They link back to my post where they saw the meme and then tag, say, 5 more people - who post their soup recipes and link back to where they saw the meme. And thus a huge chain of recommended soups takes over the blogosphere!
So here's my soup, taken from the bbc.co.uk/food site:
Tomato, basmati and cumin soup by James Martin.
½ medium onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
85g/3oz long grain rice (basmati)
2 tins of chopped tomatoes
290ml/½ pint chicken or vegetable stock
small bunch parsley, chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tbsp olive oil
1. Sauté the onion and garlic in the butter, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the cumin, rice, tomatoes and stock and cook for about 10 minutes until the rice is cooked.
2. Add the parsley and season.
3. Ladle into warm bowls, drizzle with olive oil and serve.
So, now - I tag: Stephanie, Jessica, Nic, Nikki and anyone else who stumbles across this who likes soup :D
