More soup, it’s definitely soup weather here now! This was a really tasty soup and I followed the recipe completely except when it came to cooking the kale. It said to cook it for 15 to 20 minutes which I think is far too long for any leafy vegetable so I did it for about 10 and it was perfect.
The notes at the top of the recipe suggested adding sliced sausage to it but I didn’t have any so I put in some cubed seitan from the freezer. The soup really didn’t require it though and I think it made it a bit too much, next time I will just stick with the vegetables.
After having the last few things I’ve baked be too wet this bread mixture was too dry. I knew it was too dry and I put it in the oven and cooked it anyway thereby giving us a brick rather than a loaf of bread to eat with our soup. Luckily both boys dip their bread into their soup which stopped it choking them! The taste of this was lovely though so I will try it again in the future and make sure that I make the mixture wetter.
I believe the dryness to be totally my own fault and nothing to do with the recipe. I replaced the flour with spelt flour as the note before the recipe says you can do. However, I use brown spelt flour not the white so I should have changed the amount of liquid accordingly. Like I said, I knew what to do and I knew it needed it and I still ignored myself and messed it up. Some days that’s just the way it goes…
