Mostly autumn treats

We are pretty appled out here now and i have tried lots of different apple cake reicpes. To the detriment of my waistline, haha.

These apple crumble muffins were nice. But the apple tea loaf with no fat was nicer to eat. Though not as photogenic sadly. I ll post those recipes another time. However my made up Autumn curried veg soup went down a treat and though it was thrown together with all the stuff i had in my fridge you could try to recreate it like this:

 

Fry up about 3 shallots in a little oil. Add a handful of corn kernels, 1 small chopped up courgette, half a red pepper chopped, half a small squash, about 10 cherry tomatoes til soft.Then add 1 teaspoon of cumin, tumeric, salt and garam masala half teaspoon paprika and black pepper to taste. Mix up and add 50g red lentils (about 2 handfuls, if following in the "chuck it in" method) then the secret ingredient, a tin of cream of tomato soup. Add about a litre of water and simmer til lentils are soft. Blitz with your blender of choice, add any extra seasoning if needed( mainly for those chilli fiends of you out there) and voila a tasty veg soup to serve about 6-8.

I served with a swirl of creme fraiche on top, though the one above looks more like an apple.

Enjoy autumn!
