Irish Soda Bread And Home Made Vegetable Soup.


I made some vegetable soup today; onion, celery, garlic and carrot and an OXO vegetable stock cube.  Then when it boiled and the veg felt soft with a fork.  I put it in the Smoothie maker for about 30 seconds.

The missus made a loaf of Soda bread with Odlums BROWN Soda Bread mix.  It's less than 3 Euros.  Odlums is an Irish company.  We get 4 loaves out of it.


Hey presto.  Soda bread and soup for two for less than 2 Euros.  Why do we buy soup when we can make it?

Talking of Bread.  Here's a song of theirs from way back when I love the lyrics.

  1. Vegetable soup is so easy and always tasty. Such a great way to use up all those leftover bits and pieces. Puree-ing it is the secret. Blends all the flavours. Yours sounds perfect with the soda bread.

    1. Hi LA. Yes vegetable soup is very easy and we make the bread in the range. It's a very cheap and hearty meal. Think I will make some more soup today.

  2. Those lyrics have always spoken to me. I'm so glad you reminded me of them. It took me back to happier times. By the way on your timefeed, I always show up as visiting from Durham, in fact I'm in Norfolk, which is rather a long way from there. Blessings of the season to you and your family

  3. Yes, we make delicious veggie soups and stews too and I used to make and bake my own soda bread on a daily basis, in fact up until five years ago when I had a health scare and gave up eating carbohydrates.

  5. Lots of Fish and Shell fish, Nut and Bean roasts, Ryvita - which I call dog biscuits ! Carrots, Swede, Turnips, Broccoli and Cauli,Sweet potato, assorted green salad leaves, garlic by the tonne and onions plus lots of fresh fruit. Plus 1 tiny square of dark chocolate per day.
    Out is the carbo's along with Mister Piggie, Miss Lamb, Bully Beef, salt, sugar,
    beer, wine and yeast.
    I maintain a healthy and positive attitude to life Dave and take no prisoners!
    Very occasionally I get a hankering memory of the foods that my mother used to prepare e.g. like a good thick roasted pork chop with the kidney attached and all of the trimmings or a large plate of tripe and onions in a white sauce with loads of well buttered bread - such wonderful gastronomical memories that torment me ;-)

  6. Thanks for that Heron. We live next to the sea, but hardly ever eat fish, apart from battered cod. We have a very mixed diet from English and Irish traditional food to Chinese, Mexican and Indian. We made Greek food the other day. It must awful not to be able to eat those dishes from your gastronomical memories. Thanks!
