Care for coughs and colds season… Anti-Viral Sweet Potato, Coconut & Ginger Soup

Coconut, ginger and sweet potato soup. Care for coughs and colds…

Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup

The temperature has dropped again and it seems like everyone is poorly… Mine included.  So we’re bundled up with sniffs and snivels and only hot soup and toast will do.  That along with chamomile tea and ginger biscuits!  No problem though, snuggling on the sofa and reading back to back Roald Dahl is a treat…Continue reading “Pink Potato, Fennel & Leek Soup”

Golden Beetroot Soup with Maple Roast Walnuts & Feta…

This one was a surprise to me!  Sweet, earthy goodness from the king of vegetables… The mighty, hearty, just plain delicious beetroot.  Can you tell I’m a fan? (Click here for ‘A Beetroot Affair to Remember’) I had a bag of beetroot in my latest veg box delivery, and in that bag was a goldenContinue reading “Golden Beetroot Soup with Maple Roast Walnuts & Feta…”

Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers

In the thick of this cold snap, bundled up in chunky knitwear and just as I was gloating that I haven’t been ill since I can’t remember, it hit me.  The worst cold virus I’ve had since I can’t remember… hot & cold, aching all over, 3 days on the sofa and counting and mostContinue reading “Mighty Minestrone & Other Winter Warmers”

Spicy Red Lentil & Cannellini Bean Soup & Soda Bread

Rustic, warming, hearty and nourishing… this is a true peasant’s supper!  I had a hankering for soda bread earlier but don’t usually have buttermilk at home so this one was made with yoghurt instead.  In fact it could be made with sour milk too (so don’t ever throw it out if you have it, bringContinue reading “Spicy Red Lentil & Cannellini Bean Soup & Soda Bread”

Broccoli, Stilton & Walnut Soup

Going back to the fairy garden visuals of yesterday’s brussels sprouts post, if the brussels sprouts are the cabbages, then the broccoli would be the trees.  But I’d give them little super hero capes because broccoli is super…Especially sprouting broccoli.  Perhaps this is a project for a rainy day…?!  Or perhaps I have too muchContinue reading “Broccoli, Stilton & Walnut Soup”

Halloween Pumpkin Soup with Sourdough Cheddar Croutons

The allotment is getting sleepy… and it’s also getting cold.  It’s hot dogs on the fire and hot chocolate to keep our hands warm while we’re there from now on!  The last of the harvest bounty has come in… and we’ve finally collected the gnarly old pumpkins ready for halloween and ready for pumpkin soup…Continue reading “Halloween Pumpkin Soup with Sourdough Cheddar Croutons”

Coconut, Sweet Potato & Ginger Soup with Pearl Barley aka ‘Souperb’ (because it is)!

I’m so pleased with ‘souper’ that I’m submitting it to ‘No Croutons Required’ hosted by Lisa’s Kitchen and Tinned Tomatoes which are fab sites to check out for vegetarian recipes! Here’s a casual weeknight night supper, or should I say ‘souper’!  (sorrynotsorry).  Today has been cold.  It’s the first day this Autumn that I’ve gotContinue reading “Coconut, Sweet Potato & Ginger Soup with Pearl Barley aka ‘Souperb’ (because it is)!”
