Lentil, Frankfurter and Tomato Soup

I got an urge to eat frankfurters the other day. I vaguely remember them as being part of my childhood in some way. I think my sister used to eat them ‘raw’ and I think maybe we had them with white bread buns … nope that’s where my memory runs out – but there was…

Easy Roast Butternut Squash Soup

Brrr it’s cold outside isn’t it? But it’s my favourite weather – biting frosty air makes for gorgeous views and a need to keep going, therefore it’s perfect walking weather. I’m not actually a fan of long summer walks – I tend to get a bit hot and lazy and would then rather be relaxing…

Chunky Autumn Soup

Having just bought a house, and now hankering after a piano, I’m looking to make a few little savings elsewhere in our expenses. Obviously I won’t be giving up delicious food, but eating vegetarian is a tasty and healthy way to save a few pennies. I made a huge amount of this last Sunday, with…

Easy Broccoli Soup

I used two whole heads of broccoli, and including the stalks too made it nice and creamy. I was reading something online about eating more simply, and this made…

Healthy and Hearty Tomato and Lentil Soup

Swede, Carrot and Pea Soup

I do love my lunches. I’m lucky enough to be able to pop home from work for lunch, and it’s so nice to relax and have a bit of a zen-out. Never used that phrase before. Think I will from now on though, when appropriate. Today we had snow. But not the nice kind you…

Celeriac Soup

I know that’s not a picture of celeriac soup. It’s a beautifully perfect Lake District day we had a few weeks ago – prettier than a bowl of soup. Here’s the soup: I made this celeriac soup the other day and will be slurping it for the next few days, delicious and moreish as it is. It’s really creamy – although has…
