Carrot & Coriander Soup

Today I decided I wanted to give the family a healthy low fat lunch and spotting a large bag of carrots and some leftover coriander in the fridge it didn’t take me long to decide what to make. I’d been out to the dentist and buying last minute school stationery with my daughter this morning …

Slow Cooked Pulled Lamb with White Wine & Root Vegetables

One of our favourite dishes (from a supermarket) is lamb shanks which I have never made at home but really ought to! With this in mind my husband suggested that rather than roasting the leg of lamb we had, why didn’t I slow cook it to replicate the lamb shanks we both love. As I’m …

Lentil & Ham Soup

I hope you have all had a really good Christmas and managed to stay dry and well! My part of the world was struck by all the flooding which caused many roads to be closed and meant that my husband had to take his mother home via a 10 mile trip instead of the 2 …

Curried Root Vegetable Soup

#cutfoodwaste, Meat Free Monday, healthy, Love Food Hate Waste, Vegetarian, winter

After a run of baking and eating things that just aren’t healthy I decided to make a warming winter vegetable soup for dinner and added some curry spices to it. I’d bought one of those stew packs which included a swede, carrots, onions and parsnips to which I added some potato and garlic. I have …

I made this soup just before Christmas as I’d made a glazed gammon joint and therefore had lovely gammon stock and vegetables left over from it. I was also very aware that like most Brits I’d over bought on the sprout front and had a bag I needed to use up before the big day! …
