April’s Recipe

This Creamy Blended 6-Vegetable Soup is devine. Wholesome and satisfying, it features a medley of nutritious vegetables—six kinds, to be exact—making it a legitimately great way to boost you, or your families, vegetable intake.

YOU’LL LEARN THROUGH MAKING THIS RECIPE:

  1. Building great flavour with a mirepoix. A mirepoix is not just a combination of veggies (onions, carrot, celery); it’s also a culinary technique to build a foundational flavour base in cooking. This recipe follows the principals of a mirepoix, but substitutes leek for onion.
  2. A neat (lesser-known) benefit of fat-rich foods. A little bit of nutrition science – fat-rich foods help the body absorb soluble fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K). Including them in this soup (whether butter and cream, or olive oil and blended cashews), along with the vitamin-rich vegetables, will help our body better utilise these nutrients.

The Prize

April’s prize is a Scanpan Coppernox Stock Pot 24cm/7.2L (RRP: $349NZD). This large pot is perfect for making stocks, soups and stews, or boiling enough pasta or vegetables to feed a crowd. It’s a real beauty – I love it for its:

  • High-quality construction. Designed in Denmark, this pot boasts meticulous engineering, featuring premium materials for durability and a great cooking experience.
  • Exceptional heat distribution. With an innovative copper-bonded base, the pot offers rapid and even heat dispersion, eliminating any pesky hot spots that could impact your cooking. Craftsmanship meets innovation!
  • Designed with ease in mind. It features a drip-free pouring rim for mess-free serving, stay-cool silicone handle coverings to prevent burn, inside capacity markings for easy ingredient measurement, and a convenient tempered glass lid so you can effortlessly monitor your dish as it simmers away.

Best of Luck!

I hope you enjoy this dish, and most importantly – happy eating.
