The flight home was delayed by half an hour. Not long but more time for me to feel nervous. Fortunately ‘Brian’ had died down (or blown away) so the expected turbulence didn’t materialise. Phew! Husband was there at Birmingham Airport to pick me up. I miss Ireland whenever I leave and always wish I could stay a little longer, but it’s always good to get home too.
My soup maker had arrived so, of course, I had to try it out.
I chopped a few potatoes, added leeks from the garden, a vegetable stock cube, water and seasoning.
There are settings for smooth or chunky soups. If, when the soups is cooked, it’s a little too chunky, there is a ‘blend’ option which pulses if for just a moment. The soup maker can also be used as a juicer and to make smoothies.
Can you believe it, I forgot to take a photo of the finished product! The soup was fine though I would have preferred it a little thicker. I had added liquid up to the minimum quantity line. Lesson learned – I needed to use more potato. So, what’s the verdict. The taste of the soup was just as good but is this a piece of kit worth having? The jury’s out at the moment. I need to experiment more.
