Pie and Mash Soup

I was dared to make this soup after mentioning it in my last post. So I only went and did it, its a fairly simple soup and very filling.

As a test I bought a Cooks Pie and Mash carton from Sainsburys, purely to experiment with of course, and at £2.00 a carton if it failed I would not be too out of pocket.


I cooked the carton as per the instructions on the carton and was ready to go. I  put the Mash and Liquor in the soupmaker shown below.


I then chopped the Pie into small squares


and added it to the soupmaker as shown below


I also at this point added an extra potato, beef stock, vinegar, salt and pepper.

I have to say, surprisingly, it is a great tasting soup and I will try to make with the real thing next.
