Today was a busy day. Up at 5.30am, prepping for a day at the shopping centre demonstrating the Thermomix, on my feet all day, home at 5.30pm just in time to make dinner for my hungry family… Oops, forgot to thaw out the chicken. So I popped in to the shop and grabbed a packet of smoked salmon to make a quick soup. My kids are addicted to smoked salmon. Okay, so am I.
I had a vague idea of a creamy, smoked salmon soup, without the cream (of course!), based on the smoked salmon soup in the Thermomix Seafood Cookbook. Here’s what I came up with… we loved it. (By the way, I also sauteed some veges and grilled some fish that was in the fridge, because my husband – unlike me – does not consider soup a meal!) Dinner’s done, magnesium drink and hot shower for the leg cramps from standing all day (ouch!), and now I’m veging out in front of the computer with a cup of tea and some gluten free brownies, blogging. And I’m pretty sure there’s Co Yo in my future, once the kids go to bed and I can eat it undiscovered… 😉
The thickness of this soup depends on how much potato you use – we like it really thick, so I use 600g potato, but reduce the amount of potato if you like it thinner. You can also alter the amount of stock paste to make it to your taste. The amount of smoked salmon is up to you really – I buy 200g of the chopped smoked salmon (as opposed to the thin slices) for cooking, as it’s a bit cheaper.
Oh yay, kids are in bed – CO YO TIME!! Night night 🙂
