Rich Kidney Soup

Rich kidney soup
serves 4

25g/1oz low-fat spread
225g/8oz lamb’s kidneys, finely
1 small onion, finely chopped
25g/1oz plain flour
750ml/11/4pt lamb stock
1 small bay leaf
2 tablespoons port
salt and freshly ground black pepper

• Melt the low-fat spread in a heavy saucepan over a gentle heat, and add the kidneys and onion. Gently sauté for 1 minute, stirring, so that the kidneys do not toughen. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute. • Remove from the heat and blend in the stock. Add the bay leaf, and season with salt and pepper. • Return the pan to the heat and bring the soup to the boil, stirring, until thickened. Reduce the heat, part-cover and simmer gently for 30 minutes.
• Remove and discard the bay leaf. Purée the soup in a blender or food processor, and return to the clean pan. Stir in the port, heat through gently and serve.
