  • Tasty Soup recipe, but I

    Submitted by cookingwizard on 4. February 2015 - 13:18.

    Tasty Soup recipe, but I found the recipe a bit confusing and difficult to follow. 

    The problem I had was the confusion regarding the "steam basket" mentioned in Steps 5 and 7. I didn't know if you ment the "simmer basket" or the "Varoma tray". The meat balls didn't fit into the simmer basket and made the soup just overflow out of the bowl. After a quick clean up and re-shuffling of all the meat balls, I put them into the VAROMA tray and steamed them instead.  Also, Step 10 to mix the soup at speed 10 with MC off is a bit dangerous, I did this on speed 3 which avoided any splashing.

    Overall it was a lovely tasting soup, hopefully next time I make it will be easier.

    for some reason I made this recipe up and it all got lost. Have to try again. It is as yet untested. How annoying!
