Onion And Spinach Soup with No Rise Poppy Seed Pull Apart Bread.

Growing up for me soup was always Heinz cream of tomato soup or lots of vegetables cooked and submerged in chopped tomatoes from a tin. It wasn’t because my parents are bad cooks or because we lacked fresh ingredients, it was because having five siblings it was a struggle for my parents to cook meals we will all eat. So its no surprise that I am obsessed with soups that don’t contain tomato. Ever since the day when I was about thirteen when we visited our step cousins and I tried onion soup for the first time, I have been obsessed with finding the best onion soup recipe ever. I just love how it celebrates onions in their own right. Though saying that, this soup also contains spinach because I had some in the fridge that desperately needed using up. Let me just say, this is not the best onion soup recipe ever, but it is very tasty.

Onion and spinach soup recipe: (serves 2)

  •  2 onions
  • 2 handfulls of spinach
  • 1 tsp dryed basil
  • 3 tsp bisto beef gravy powder
  • 4 tsp instant tomato soup powder
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 glasses of water
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • Cheddar Cheese, grated, to serve

Roughly chop the onion. Fry on medium heat until half cooked. Add the vinegars and soy sauce. Once cooked through add the pepper, basil,gravy powder,stock cube, soup powder and 2 glasses of water. Turn the heat to full and bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the spinach and cook through. Then add the rest of the water. Bring to boil and simmer for 10 minute.

Serve with grated cheddar cheese.

No Rise Poppy Seed Pull Apart Bread Recipe: (serves two - only half the bread is in the photograph)

  • 8oz self raising flour
  • 4 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • Milk
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds

In a mug mix the hot water and the yeast, leave for 5 minutes. Mix the flour, pepper,salt and 1 tbsp poppy seeds in a mixing bowl. Add the cider vinegar, stir in. Add the yeast mix, stir in. At this point the dough shouldnt be coming together. Add milk in very very small amounts until the dough comes together. Kneed for 5 minutes until soft. I use a 8” enamel round pie dish but you can use any dish really. Break the dough into 12 peices, roll them into balls, they should each be about 1 inch thick. Place the dough balls into the dish so that they touch but retain their shape. Brush with milk and sprinkle the remaining poppy seeds on top. Bake for 20 minutes at 200C.
