Lava in the Drum Soup

Ross Hornby, under the username djh3max, is a member of the Yogscast and a third of Hat Films. Ross, Chris Trott, and Alex Smith are particularly well known for playing Minecraft, Trials Evolution, and a variety of other games. Due to some of them having graduated in film production, their style of editing is often praised for being smooth and professional.

Ross can be considered the most mature of the group, preferring to stay out of strange conversations that Smith and Trott will delve into. But, on several occasions, he will opt to join in with Smith to insult Trott or join in on an obscene joke. When conjuring an impromptu song, Ross often provides a beat, showing surprising talent. Ross often goes under the alias of “Djh3max”. Ross can also be considered the most skilled editor of the group. Hat Films have released several “USA Roadtrip” vlogs, of the guy’s recent trip to America. In those videos, Ross has shown exceptional skills in his edits that have been extremely well received by the fans.

Ingredients

150g Bacon Lardons
1 Carrot (chopped)
0.5 Onion (diced)
4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
2 tbsp Tomato Puree
1 tbsp Plain Flour
750ml Chicken Stock
0.5 tsp Thyme (chopped)
1 Bay Leaf
400g Chopped Tomatoes
100ml Double Cream
50g Cheddar Cheese (grated)

This references a quote from Hat Films’ Hat Corp Minecraft videos; “Put a bit of lava in the drum”, the video is below! I’ve attempted to replicate the lava look, with good flavours through the dish. The grated cheese topping should melt into the soup giving it and yellowy-orange gradient to top.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Fry the bacon in a large saucepan over medium low heat until bacon starts to get crispy and browned, about 5-8 minutes.
Step 2
Add the carrots, onion, and garlic to the bacon in the pan; saute for 5-10 minutes until the vegetables are very aromatic and tender.
Step 3
Add the tomato puree – stir for a few minutes until you can see/smell the tomato puree starting to brown and caramelize. Add the flour and stir for a minute or so.
Step 4
Add the stock, thyme, bay leaf, and chopped tomatoes to the soup pot. Simmer for 30 minutes then take off the heat. Puree in batches using a food processor or hand blender and return to the pot. Stir in the cream and serve with grated cheese to melt on top.
