Tuesday Food Blog - Witches' Brew Chowder

Back again having had a busy weekend. I decided to have petit pois soup for lunch and discovered that there is a recipe for Witches' Brew chowder, so I decided to adapt the tin of soup I had into something suitable for a flying female magician.

Witches' Brew Chowder

Now if you want to be a purist then create your own petit pois soup base but frankly the quality of specialist soups is so high that opening a tin can be a serious option.


1 can of Morrison's Petit Pois and Asparagus soup
1 small onion, chopped
2 rashers of bacon, chopped and fried
1 tsp garlic salt
salt and pepper


Fry the chopped onion and bacon with the garlic salt and pepper. After the bacon has browned (you could roast it separately) add the soup and heat thoroughly.

This soup is extra tasty for the additions, but you could go further by adding other veg such as celery, carrots or potato. I was tempted to add a couple of handfuls of rice to make a pilaf but felt that the soup was thick enough anyway and I would have had to add water which would have diluted the flavours.

Making meals from soup is not knew but for those less confident with their cooking this is an easy way to create a beautifully tasty meal with a great name - Witches' Brew Chowder.

God Bless
