A Stir Fry Sauce in a Soup You Say? Bonkers…but it Works. Sunflower Satay Stir Fry Vegetable Soup
This sunflower satay soup was one of those experimental dishes that could have gone terribly wrong, as you can maybe guess since I am sharing the recipe, it turned out pretty good and you could have it on the table within 15 minutes. Bonus!
Marks & Spencers have a stir fry range and one of their sauces is a sunflower satay and retails for £1, or if your lucky enough to get a yellow sticker day you could get it for 25p. We had one in our fridge for a couple of days past the yellow sticker so it had to be used and I am not sure where the soup idea came from but I went with it.
I had some roasted chicken stock in the fridge from the weekend but you could easily use a stock cube or a pouch of fresh stock from the supermarket and if you wanted to go vegetarian then just go for a vegetable stock.
You could really use whatever vegetables you fancy for this but I would say definitely keep the cauliflower as one of the main ingredients. I think it would also be lovely with butternut and sweet potato as the vegetables. Once it is cooked through I partially blitzed it so it had a bit more body but still retained a good amount of chunks to make it feel hearty.
When you first add in the sunflower satay sauce to the soup it looks like it is curdling, don’t worry about this, once it has heated through it will all come together. The sunflower satay gives a really nice nutty note to the soup.
Hope you enjoy and do leave a comment if you do.
