Tins of soup that taste good are one of the things Britain does best. That and cheese..how we miss cheddar! Despite that, in the U.K. I hardly ever bought soup. The occasional cream of mushroom alongside a cheese sandwich as a cosy nights’ tea and that was about it. Here, we eat a lot more soup but mostly it’s a winter thing or when we break our fast. My parents in law eat soup every day. Every. Single. Day. No meal is complete without it, but we can’t buy Campbell’s here. Lentil soups, tomato, yoghurt..it’s kind of like soup rotation with whatever is hanging out in the fridge. Lentil though is the staple and thankfully it’s one that’s easy enough to tweak into a tin like consistency; cook far too much, make it much too thick, water it down when you need it. From freezer to bowl might take a little while longer but the end result’s almost as easy. So that’s what we’re doing right now..solving one thing at a time, tweaking our needs, wants and cans. Isn’t that what life’s all about anyway?
