Vegetable purée/soup

Last Sunday was such a lazy day for me. I literally could not get out of bed. It took such will power to finally do so around 2pm. I was starving but didn't have the strength to do any major cooking. I looked in my fridge and there were vegetables staring back at me. I knew that if I didn't use them, they would go bad so here is what I cooked up.

- About 8 carrots
- 2 green bell peppers
- 3 onions
- Garlic
- One cucumber
- A table spoon of olive oil
- Salt

Cooking time: 30 minutes

- I cleaned and put all the vegetables in a pot over low heat to steam for about 2 minutes (except cucumber of course).

-  I let them cool down them blended all together.

- I put a pan over low heat, poured in the table spoon of  olive oil then heated my purée for a minute and sprinkled salt over it.

Voilà, food was ready!

This is packed full of nutrients and suitable for all ages. Bread is not a bad idea to eat with this!

NB - I am sure more vegetables can be used and the final result could be garnished with parsley ;) but these ingredients were what I had available.

If you happen to be like me this weekend, maybe you should give this a try.


  1. Looks nice, sounds like lots of nutrients. I wonder how it tastes.

    1. That will depend on your taste buds. If you are one for heavy spices, you might want to spice it. Salt was the only thing I used as the rich taste of all the vegetables was just fine ;)
