ROSEMARY AND MAPLE SYRUP ROASTED CARROT SOUP


I remember a time when the only carrot soup that seemed to exist was with coriander (yuk). Served in a watery consistency, I felt like I was being punished on two levels. One I don’t like coriander and two, since this it is a root veg where the thick, rich consistency gone – why was…

QUICK THAI GREEN CURRY COURGETTE SOUP


I once had a soup business at work as a sideline. It would seem that my soups were cheaper, tastier and healthier  than crappy sandwiches the local area offered.

MONDAY THE VERY GREEN SOUP – Some contents from my fridge


Do you ever look at the contents of your fridge and wonder quite what to do with them?? Well after a frivolous Waitrose shop i found myself purchasing all sorts of nonsense foods that I really didn’t need. Being a single and living by myself (*she cries*), the 2 large tubs of full fat Philadelphia…
