A recipe that works well when you pretty much have nothing in the house, semolina is rich in fibre and minerals.

Semolina Soup
100g vegetables, various kinds, cut into tiny cubes
50g semolina
20g butter
1 litre vegetable stock (I like to make mine from scratch with tired old vegetables, but you can use organic powder vegetable stock)
1 pinch thyme
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch salt
1 tablespoon parsley

Saute the semolina in the butter, add the vegetables and briefly saute them too, and pour on the vegetable stock. Add the thyme, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and nutmeg, and serve with finely chopped parsley.

Chopped vegetables and semolina ready to go in the saucepan.

This is (I believe) a fairly tasty soup. It has a slightly cheesy flavour reminscent of parmesan. Oliver eats it without any fuss, and loves dipping bits of bread in it. A winner all round.
