What to do with leftovers?
Do you ever have those days when you just want a big plate of veggies? Well I definitely do, and sometimes salad just wont cut it (especially when it is cold and you have no rocket left). So what do you do? You roast the mother load of vegetables: Kumera, Potatoes, Pumpkin, Parsnips, Garlic, Celariac(OMG I love this ugly devil), Carrots, Leek... I tossed them in Olive oil and a pounded spice mix (dried chili, bay leaves, pepper, rosemary, salt, lemon rind).
So we ate our fill.. and gee they were good. But what do you do with the rest? I told you this was the mother load, lol. Well you put them in a pot with some water and milk and puree it. You get the best vegetable soup ever, so much more caramely and tasty than if you just boil the vegetables. If you go to the effort of roasting vegetables, even if it is to have with a roast chicken, or leg of lamb.... Please roast extra and make this, you will be so glad you did. (roast tomatoes make the best tomato soup too)
