Crema de Rajas (Poblano Rajas Cream Soup)

118

There are days that all I fancy doing is nothing and today is one of those days, but at the end I ended up working a lot, where do time goes??? As I am writing this recipe is almost time to pick up my little ones from school and I still haven’t finish my work, uff! I could do with a bit more time for myself to do all the things I need to do.

Anyway, because my morning literally went so quickly, I was thinking of what to have for lunch (I was starving hungry!!!) but I didn’t want to spent too much time in the kitchen, so I thought about cooking this super mega delicious cream soup using some of my poblano rajas I made yesterday and what a great idea! I had lunch really quick! Honestly! It was super mega fast!

I love these soups, my dad used to make a carrot cream soup to die for and ai guessed that it is because of him that I started to love them and now it is one of my comfort food dishes of all times! I use almost any vegetable and listo! I have a soup in no time!

Here is the lovely recipe! Enjoy and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
