What do you add to your soup?

Postby Lawrie9 » 7 May 2010, 4:45pm

Do any of you as touring cyclists add anything interesting to your soup? I add chopped onions, lentles, noodles, grated carrot, chopped mint, chives and sorrel. One could also add chopped mushrooms. Let us know if you add anything interesting to your soup.

How boring... :wink:

What's wrong with road-kill? There'll be tons of that, esp this time of year.

Anyone own up to eating "road soup"?

I know a chap who regularly picks up pheasant and rabbits from the road to cook for tea,its not unusual to see a tail feather sticking out of his saddlebag!

Beard hair usually :shock:
But there again, an unruly set of whiskers means that the consumtion of anything soupy, cream bunny or icecreamy is bound to end up resembling a nasty accident :oops:

My favourite quick soup at the mo' is Fresh Pea, and is notable more for what I don't put in it!
Simply cook the contents of 1 small packet of frozen peas in the normal way, in about a pint of water with some trimmed spring onions. Once done, blend and eat. Yummy. Simple. Easy at home, but the issue for the traveling cyclist is how to blend it. Any ideas?

I wonder at what point is it adding to the soup as opposed to the 'addition' being an ingredient of the soup. If the soup is planned from the outset, the ingredients gathered, prepared and used in the making, then the only extra should be salt and pepper to taste - with the exception of crusty bread dipped in during eating! Yum!
Retired and loving it

Some people in californi-a have made blenders that are pedal powered.
