IMBB #14 – Celebrate Ooorange!

This is exciting! My first IMBB event. Yay! I think food is a basic sustenance, but I think food is taken to another level when it is shared with people. So many thanks to our gracious host - the ladygoat! This is my splash of orange.

Cold Soup of Carrot and Saffron with Beancurd


1 large onion, finely chopped
1 small leek, finely chopped
6 medium sized carrots, finely chopped
2 sticks celery, finely chopped
1.25 liters chicken stock
1 pinch saffron threads
2 teaspoons soy sauce
125ml soy milk
1 tablespoon beancurd
1 tablespoon soy milk
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives


Sweat the onion, leek, carrot and celery in a small pan over low heat without any oil. Add the stock, saffron and soy sauce, and cook until the vegetables are tender.

Purée the mixture, then add any leftover stock to achieve the desired consistency. Taste, and adjust the seasoning if necessary.

Cool, add the 125 soy milk, and check for seasoning again.

Purée the beacurd or push through a very fine sieve. Mix with the tablespoon of soy milk. Place a little of the beancurd mixture in the center of the soup, top with chives.

Looking at the finished product, it reminds me of my stay in Amsterdam and how the Dutch supporters were out in their orange array in the streets on the day they were going to play Scotland for a place in Euro 2004. Well, celebrate life, celebrate orange!
