Sounds very much like something from an episode of The Munsters from the late 1950s, but it tastes different from your run-of-the-mill "Cream of ..." soup, which is a major plus when you've been feeding people soup and stews for what probably seems like forever!
Can be Chicken, Mushroom, or Celery. Substitute whichever you like!
|Half a medium onion, chopped||2 heaped teaspoons of chopped garlic|
|Heaped tsp Summer Savoury||Heaped tsp Nutmeg|
|1 Tsp Pepper||2 litres of Milk|
|Half stick of butter||2 cans of condensed Thing soup (e.g. Campbells)|
|Two or three slices of brown bread|
You can use soy milk instead of cow's milk.
- Melt the butter in a pot that will comfortably hold all the milk.
- Add the onions and garlic and gently fry until the onions are beginning to become soft and translucent.
- Add the pepper and herbs, mix, and let cook in for maybe five minutes.
- Add the soup and the milk and raise the heat to medium.
- Use a whisk to stir up the mixture so that the soup completely dissolves in the milk.
- Break up the bread into smallish pieces and add it to the soup.
- Keep whisking gently to aerate the soup as it warms.
- When the soup is hot enough you'll see tiny bubbles around the edge of the pot - they're the hottest places and are beginning to boil.
This should provide a good portion of soup for four. Enjoy!!
