marrow soup
taut!Marrows don't taste of anything but you can make them taste of loveliness easily. This was the first time I ever ate one. I might not bother again. It's a nice soup, but I've had nicer.


This makes gallons, so check out your soup needs before embarking on this one.


What you need:
  • One large marrow, sort of chipped;
  • A bit of butter;
  • Four leeks, roughly chopped;
  • Eight cloves garlic;
  • Four teaspoons of dried oregano;
  • A few bay leaves;
  • Two pints of passata;
  • About two teaspoons sundried tomato paste or tomato puree;
  • About the same amount of harissa;
  • The juice of one lemon;
  • Olive oil;
  • Large glass of red wine;
  • Seasoning.

All you do here is fry up the leeks, and marrow in butter and olive oil on a low heat for ages (10 mins).

Chuck in the other non-liquidy stuff for a few minutes, then add the liquid and boil until the marrow's tender.

Blend, blend, blend.

Eat. Hmmm?



editor's note:
being dumb american joes, everyone thought marrow was that stuff inside our bones, which made no sense in terms of this recipe. so, i wrote adele back and asked her what the heck 'marrow' is...
Marrows may be viewed in their natural habitat here.
They are like squashes with less appeal. Relative of courgettes (zuchini to you?)
A large on then is about 14" long. Marrows are also a staple of dodgy english jokes about garden sheds. Not that I am above such things."
