Carrot & Butter Nut Squash Soup And Salad

今日の夕食は、スープとサラダ。

Today’s dinner was Soup & Salad.

 

スープは冷蔵庫に残っていたバターナッツスクウォッシュと人参を混ぜました。タマネギとクミン、コリアンダー、カレーパウダーなどを炒めて人参のスライスを加えひたひたにお水を加えてしばらく煮、バターナッツスクウォッシュのスライスを加えてやわ楽なるまで煮てブレンダーで潰すだけ。甘くて、スパイスの香りも良く、美味しかったです。

Soup was Carrot & Butternut squash Soup – just because I wanted to use up the butternut squash left in the fridge before it went off.  Very simple: I sautéed chopped onion with cumin, coriander, curry powder, salt & pepper then added carrot slices, water just below the carrots, simmered it for 10 minutes, then added butternut squash slices, simmered it again until it was nice and soft then put it in the blender.  It was very sweet with nice flavour from the spices and the vegetables.

サラダ。今日サラダにしようと思ったのは、アボカドが3つもあったから。なのに、なのに、全滅でした(涙)。メインディッシュのサラダにアボカドがないなんて〜。キュウリ、トマト、ゆで卵、りんご、バタービーンズ、チョリソ、赤パプリカ、黄パプリカ、セロリ、タマネギ、レタス類。アボカドがないとわかっていればチキンでも焼いたのですが、3つもあれば1つくらいは大丈夫だろうと思ったのが間違いでした。

Then a salad.  The reason I decided to make a salad was because we had 3 avocados.  However, they were all off!  So sad!  A main dish salad without avocado…  I would have cooked some chicken breast but I assumed there will be at least 1 good avocado that could be used among the three.  Big mistake.  So it was quite a light salad – cucumber, tomato, boiled egg, apple, butter beans, chorizo, red pepper, yellow pepper, celery, onion, lettuce leaves.

幸いスープが結構たっぷりあったので、それなりに満足出来ました。

Fortunately, the soup was relatively filling so we felt OK after the salad although there was no avocado.
