BROCCOLI AND STILTON SOUP
Ingredients:1 onion, diced 1 tablespoon of olive oli 2 broccoli, chopped 2 potatoes, peeled and cubed 100g of stilton cheese
Method In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in olive oil until translucent. Stir in broccoli and potatoes and cook until vegetables begin to release their moisture. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in cheese until melted. 2. Puree soup in a blender or food processor or with an immersion blender.
Ingredients 4 fairly small boneless, skinless chicken 1 tbsp ground corianderbreasts (about 600g/1lb 5oz) ½ heaped tsp ground turmeric freshly ground black pepper ¼ tsp hot chilli powder 25g/1oz low-fat natural yoghurt 1 bay leaf 1 tbsp sunflower oil 4 whole cloves 2 large onions, chopped (400g/14ozprepared weight) 1 tbsp plain flour 4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced small pinch saffron 20g/¾oz piece fresh root ginger, peeled 2 tsp caster sugarand finely grated ½ tsp fine sea salt, plus extra to season 12 cardamom pods, seeds crushed 3 tbsp double cream 1 tbsp ground cumin fresh coriander, roughly torn, to garnish (optional)
Preparation method Cut each chicken breast into eight or nine bite-sized pieces, season with black pepper and put them in anon-metallic bowl. Stir in the yoghurt, cover with cling film and chill for a minimum of 30 minutes but ideally2–6 hours. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick saucepan and add the onions, garlic and ginger. Cover and cook over alow heat for 15 minutes until very soft and lightly coloured. Stir the onions occasionally so they don’t start tostick. Once the onions are softened, stir in the crushed cardamom seeds, cumin, coriander, turmeric, chillipowder and bay leaf. Pinch off the ends of the cloves into the pan and throw away the stalks. Cook thespices with the onions for five minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the flour, saffron, sugar and ½ teaspoon of salt, then slowly pour 300ml/½ pint cold water into thepan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle simmer, then cover and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Preparation method (1)Remove the pan from the heat, take out the bay leaf and blend the onion mixture with a stick blender until it is as smooth as possible. You can do this in a food processor if you prefer, but let the mixture cool slightly first.The sauce can now be used right away or cooled, covered and chilled until 10 minutes before serving.Drain the chicken in a colander over the sink, shaking it a few times – you want the meat to have just a light coating of yoghurt.Place a non-stick frying pan on the heat, add the sauce and bring it to a simmer.Add the chicken pieces and cream and cook for about 10 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through, stirring regularly. Exactly how long the chicken takes will depend on the size of your pieces, so check a piece after eight minutes – there should be no pink remaining.Adjust the seasoning to taste, spoon into a warmed serving dish and serve garnished with freshcoriander if you like.
Mash the flesh of avocados andadd the lemon juice and the garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
Put it in little glasses and leave aside in the fridge.
