Now, let’s not be naive. This is not a 5 minutes active-type meal.

I’m not sure when they start the timer on the “5 minutes active” portion of this recipe. ¬†Chopping the onion, garlic, carrot and celery take far longer than that. ¬†I would estimate 25 minutes of active time, and that’s with me buying bulk sausage, and not having to remove the casings.

It was a good soup though.

  1. Every recipe I see does that. They always way underestimate prep time. Either they all have chef-level chopping skills, or they all use a slap chop or something. Even though I’m a much more prolific cook than I used to be, I’m still pretty slow with the knife.

    1. It bugs me, because so many people are cooking-shy. I hope their inability to do an impossible task doesn’t move them further away from cooking.

  2. Is there an assumption that you have a sous chef doing prep work?!?!

    (This is another post that I seemed to have missed…MOOP).
