Lately I’ve been getting bored with my stand-by meals. I’m sure most people have them, the things they both like to cook and eat. The things the family likes, the things that are easy, use ingredients at hand, and can be whipped up in no time at all. Well sometimes I feel that that’s all I’ve been cooking and I feel the need to try something new. Often these new additions work well, and occasionally they even become a stand-by meal in their own right. Sometimes though they go badly, sometimes very badly indeed but more often they are just not quite right. This dish is a case in point:
Well it wasn’t horrible but if I’m truthful it wasn’t very good either.
What is it I hear you ask?
Well, it’s a spiced potato & cauliflower soup, or aloo gobi soup if you will. Frankly I wouldn’t because it just isn’t worth it. In theory it should taste ok, potato & cauliflower have been cooked together for centuries. Both are often made into soups, both marry well with spices so what went wrong? Perhaps it was me but the result was just a bit of a blah gluggy mess. I ate it – a lot of added greek yoghurt and chilli helped but would I make it again?…errr no. So this week I wont share a recipe, more of a warning – potato & cauliflower soup might be nice but when you make it as you would a curry, add lots of stock and then puree there’s just something a bit wrong…perhaps it was the spicing…
