Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup

Broccoli and Blue Cheese Soup

Happy 2017! To welcome in the new year, I have made a delicious broccoli and blue cheese soup to share with you. This recipe is an excellent way to use up any extra cheese you have leftover from the holiday season so be adventurous, any cheese from stilton to cheddar will work. I used a Wensleydale blue  made in a county close to my heart – Yorkshire! I studied at the University of Leeds...
Easy Vegetarian Pho

Easy Vegetarian Pho

I make this easy vegetarian pho every other week, as I love how the stock uses any vegetables that are on the turn or scraps that are going in the compost. Kale stalks, bendy carrots, soft aubergine, onion skins, anything. An excellent recipe for using up the dregs of your veg box. I have another pho recipe on the blog but the list of ingredients is as long as my arm. So, pho lovers, do not hate me for...
Egg Drop Miso Courgetti Soup

Egg Drop Miso Courgetti Soup

Egg drop soup is a Chinese soup made by creating a flavourful broth, then adding a thin stream of beaten eggs which cook in the hot broth, creating thin strands of...
Smoky Squash & Butterbean Soup

Smoky Squash & Butterbean Soup

This soup is an excellent winter warmer, full of flavour and spice. It makes enough for about 6 servings so it is great to make over the weekend to keep you going over the week. Adding the toasted spicy seeds gives a lovely savoury crunch, and can be kept in an airtight container for a week or so. Add them to soups, salads, stir fries – anything to add a little crunch and flavour. Smoky Squash...
Harissa Roasted Cauliflower and Almond Soup

Harissa Roasted Cauliflower and Almond Soup

This Moroccan influenced cauliflower and almond soup is full of healthy protein and fats with metabolism boosting chilli paste. I am an absolute soup lover, so it is quite a surprise that I only have 3 soup recipes so far on the blog. Soup is such a good winter warmer, especially this thick and creamy rib sticking recipe with a spicy kick from the harissa! I promised I would post my homemade harissa recipe in my sriracha recipe and...
Spinach Soup with Basil Walnut Pesto

Spinach Soup with Basil Walnut Pesto

This iron-rich spinach soup with basil walnut pesto soup only takes 10 minutes to make and uses mainly store cupboard ingredients, so is an excellent weekday meal. The pesto adds a hit of flavour and protein to this already fibre rich soup, perfect for satiating hunger. The weather has taken a turn for the worse these past few days in South West England, and soup is my go-to recipe in blustery weather. Surprisingly I...
