    Vegetable Soup-How to Peel Garlic in a Flash

    That Vegetable Bin in the fridge, has bits and pieces of Vege in there. All looking a little tired.
    My favourite Phrase 'Waste Not, Want Not'. came to mind
    Carrot, red onion, parsnip, kumara celery and red cabbage.
    Peel and chop
    Just heat a tablespoon of oil and throw in the prepared vegetables
    Season with a tablespoon of Vegeta and some freshly ground black pepper
    Cover with water
    Bring to the boil
    Simmer till the vege are tender
    Take half of the soup and blend
    Return to the pot, stir and serve
    Great quick lunch.

    Now I have an excellent hint
    Peeling Garlic
    Normally I cut the root end off and bash it
    The skin just comes off.
    BUT here is a really easy way and you are left with an un-bashed clove of garlic.
    Just pop the garlic into the Microwave
    Zap for 10-12 seconds
    Onto the bench and the skin just slides off
