We are making soup tomorrow, now in the past when we have made this at harvest time not a huge amount of children have eaten it. We are making it tomorrow to be part of our 'S' sound activites along with sandwiches and sausage roll snakes. Has anyone got a tried and tested recipe that the children may actually want to try? :1b

Leek and tattie always a winner in our house;

 

This recipe serves one so just multiply it up;

For the soup

50g/2oz unsalted butter

 

½ onion, finely sliced

 

½ leek, trimmed and chopped

 

½ potato, peeled and chopped

 

150ml/4½fl oz hot vegetable stock

 

For the leek and potato soup, heat the butter in a pan and sauté the onion and leek until softened.

 

Add the potato and stock and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer for ten minutes, or until the potato is tender. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

 

Pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth.

well you cheeky thing, it does the soul good to confess - in which case where did you get it? Say now and I won't set Sunnyday onto you, she can be very persuasive if you know what I mean!

The soup was delicious, but still only two of the children ate it!! I think that one of the children had never seen soup before in his life as he had no idea how to eat it!! The staff appreciated the leftovers as we had a taxing morning building a Quadro fire engine!!

This is a recipe for Green soup I've used with pre-school children. I particularly like the fact that ingredients are cut with scissors. Best results when whizzed with a blender when cooked. When I used a puppet to explain to the children that the puppet only liked green soup and could they make some for him, this got the best result with children wanting to try the soup.

 

Find that some groups of children like soup and some don't.

 

Agree that potato and leek was popular especially when drunk outside around the 'leafy bonfire' around bonfire night.
