Coming back wet and cold from the allotment, I decided soup was the best thing for lunch - and with one bag full of broad beans and another of peas, thought it best to use at least some of them.
I wasn't quite sure what I was making at the start - I podded some broad beans and started cooking them, then added some of last year's tomatoes from the freezer. I wondered about making chilli at this point so added a couple of my dried chillies and a small courgette - from the polytunnel at the allotment. Then thought about the peas and kale I'd brought home so added them instead and called it minestrone.
Normally I'd add carrots but I'd decided by this point to only use my homegrown produce, though I did add some chopped up leaves from shop-bought celery.
Unfortunately, hubby was late back for lunch and the kale overboiled a bit and looked bedraggled - still, it tasted lovely!
