Just before Christmas, the nice people at Hugh Jordan & Co, sent me a gift of a soup gun. Folks, this ain’t no ordinary soup gun. Oh no. It’s a Sammic TR250 soup gun worth over €300.
It. Is. The. Bees. Knees.
Easy to use, easy to clean, liquidises your pot of soup in seconds and guess what?

Meanwhile, I have been putting my soup gun to good use with soups over the holiday period. Here’s my recipe for a very simple, but incredibly delicious, pea soup.
Pea soup is quick, economical and easy to make. Served with homemade bread, it makes a vibrant, tasty lunch. Well liquidized, it is an ideal soup for an elegant dinner party and is equally at home served in a cup amongst a tray of canapés.
450 g frozen peas
4 shallots (diced) or 1 large onion (diced)
2 leeks (diced)
1 potato (peeled and chopped)
800 mls vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to season
Melt the butter and add the shallots and leeks. Stir over a low heat for a couple of minutes until they start to soften.
Add the potato and cook for one minute.
Add the frozen peas and the stock and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
Blitz with your soup gun for 4-5 seconds.
Return to the pot and reheat gently.
Season to taste.
This really couldn’t be any easier and is a favourite amongst all ages here at Hunters Lodge.
