I attempted my first self portrait Tuesday piece in quite a while this morning.
This month’s theme is All of Me: embrace your mistakes, enjoy the ugly bits.
So I took a photo of my greying hair. You know, being brave ‘n all.
Cropped, enhanced, cropped again.
The computer crashed.
I am taking this as a sign.
So you get a recipe instead.
Kumara and lentil soup
2 tsps oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium (300g) kumara (sweet potato), chopped
1 cup red lentils
3 cups chicken/vegetable stock
Cook onion in oil over medium heat until soft. Add everything else and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20-30 mins until kumara is soft. Blend or just mash to desired texture, and serve with plain yoghurt or a dollop of cream.
I usually double this recipe and freeze half for a later date.
Another version of this is to add curry powder to the oil and onion, and a few more veggies, such as broccoli or celery, for a chunky change.
