Curried banana soup

If you've found your way to this post and seen past the title you may aswell jump in with both feet and cook up a batch of this yummy soup :)

One evening i was sitting around my best friends house & her lovely mummy got me to taste the yummiest soup ive ever tasted! I wasn't told that the soup contained bananas before I tasted it so I was very surprised to find out the ingredients. Since then I have made this soup 3 times & I fall in love with it a bit more each time. I think this comes from a recipe book they have so I take no kudos (do people still use that word lol) for it :)

I have been desperate to share this recipe with you for ages so here it goes. Please comment if you give this ago id love to know what you think. 

The ingredients you will need
(The recipe says to include 50g of butter I missed this out to save on Weight Watcher points and make it a bit healthier)
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon of curry powder (if your a bit of a spice fiend wack as much as you like in)
110g basmati rice
1.25 litres chicken stock (I used vegetable stock)
250ml single cream
2 ripe bananas, peeled & cut into chunks

Step 1
Cook your onion & garlic in a pan gently for about 10 minutes (or until soft without browning)

Step 2
Add your curry powder in and cook for a further 3 minutes

Step 3
Add your rice and stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 25 minutes (or until your rice is nice and soft)

Step 4
Blend. Then add your cream and your bananas. Blend again until smooth

Step 5
After giving it a try I wanted it a bit more fiery so I put it back on the hob and stirred in some more curry powder (you can make it as hot or as not as you like)

This recipe gives me 4 good size portions each coming in at 5 propoints a portion if your a Weight Watchers member. I put the batches in the fridge and have it for a sweet fiery filling lunch :)

Thanks for reading lovelies, hope youve found this twist on soup interesting enough to give it ago for yourselves :)
