Turn off the heat.

You can either use an immersion blender to puree the soup or use a blender.

When using a blender ensure you cover and only fill two thirds of the jug. Blend until smooth.

Pour back in the sufuria and taste for seasoning and adjust accordingly.

Add a pinch of ground nutmeg and stir.

  1. Let me just ask a question at the expense of appearing totally blonde.

      He he not a blonde question.
      Beef stock is practically beef soup, you can either make it. Beef with flavourings such as onions, carrots and celery then adding lots of water. Letting the beef cook until tender and then you can use the liquid in soups.
      Alternatively you can buy beef cubes and dilute in warm to hot water to make stock. For this recipe I used a beef cube.

    I saw it, liked it, tried it and I LOOOOVE the outcome! Soo easy to make.My variations were as follows:
    I didn’t have whole ginger so I used tropical heat ginger powder instead
    I used plain water instead of beef stock…same result
    Thank you for this!
