The magic of fresh rice, potatoes and carrots: Žaneta’s soup recipe dictated by the leftovers in the cupboard | Food

At least, warm soup is served on Zhaneta’s family dinner table at least twice a week, and always on weekends.

“A good soup can be a prelude to the main meat dish, and generally instead, if you prepare something delicious. In other words, we are a soup-eating family,” Žaneta said.

It was on a weekend in October, about ten years ago, 15 minutes The reader said she had made her signature soup. Žaneta felt too tired to go to the store that day, but her family was not kind – she asked for soup.

Janet found fresh carrots and potatoes in the kitchen cupboard. There was a packet of rice and a couple of cubes of vegetable stock in the drawer. A handful of dill in the fridge.

“I used to think it was the end of the world trying to combine potatoes and rice in one dish, but then I decided. A delicious, but not heavy soup with a light sour taste. And, you know, this is how I make my family’s favorite soup for autumn weekends “, Žaneta presented her signature dish.

We wash and shave the vegetables. Carrots cut into slices, potatoes into small cubes.

Put vegetables and rice in boiling water.

We cook on low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring constantly.

Season with salt and pepper.

In the middle of the process, we send stock cubes and bay leaves to the pot. While cooking, sprinkle with chopped dill. If you want it to be “greasy”, you can add a spoonful of sour cream.

Before cooking, you can fry the carrots – they will be softer, and the soup will be tastier.

Don’t hesitate to experiment with Maggi stock cubes too: try using every vegetable and chicken.
