filled with yummy soup

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized apples, peeled & chopped
  • 5 medium sized peaches, peeled & chopped
  • 1 cup of redcurrant (250g)
  • 3 bananas
  • 1l water
  • 1 cup of soy yogurt (or any plant-based yogurt)
  • 2 teaspoons of cornstarch
  • 5 tablespoons of (cane) sugar
  • 1 package of vanilla sugar

Method

  1. Chop the apples and transfer them to a pot with the sugar and ½ l of water. Cook on medium heat for ten minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the fruits. Peel the bananas, slice them up thinly and cut the peaches into small pieces.*
  3. Next step is to add the redcurrant to the soup and cook for another 3 minutes. Then, add the peaches, bananas and the remaining water. Bring to boil and cook for 5 more minutes.**
  4. In a small bowl whisk together the cornstarch, vanilla sugar and yogurt. Mix it into the soup stirring constantly for another 5 minutes or until it thickens.
  5. Chill for at least one hour to overnight before serving. Plate nicely and garnish with lemon slices, lavender or mint leaves.

Enjoy! ❤

Notes

* Other fruits work too, feel free to freestyle the recipe based on locally accessible goodies or kitchen leftovers. We had some overripe bananas so we added them for a creamier consistency. It rocks!

** The riper the fruits, the less time is needed to cook them. Should your bananas or any other fruits be overripe, cook them for max 2-3 minutes before adding the yogurt mix.
