Fresh beetroot

Easy Beetroot Soup

Beetroot soup is my definition of comfort. Make your own at home with this easy recipe. Start by softening a whole onion off in a pan with a stick of celery and a carrot. Add one liter of vegetable stock and 2 large or 4 small uncooked, peeled beetroots. Bring this to the boil and then simmer until the beetroot is tender. Blitz in a blender and enjoy. Add a dollop of crème fresh and a sprig of dill for extra fanciness. 


Freeze-dried fruits are a god-send

We all know how difficult it is to keep fresh fruit like raspberries and strawberries in the fridge; either they’re eaten before we get to them or they’ve gone off when the time comes. We love using different freeze dried fruits to add an element of tang and they give the most glorious pop of colour too. Freeze dried raspberries look amazing on a light cake or dessert to make it really stand out on the plate.

Guilt Free Sweet Potato Chips

The sweet potato is the perfect alternative to its carbohydrate rich cousin.  Cut them up into thin, pencil width slices after peeling, coat in vegetable oil and set the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas 6. Place on a large baking tray and sprinkle with flaked sea salt and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary and cook for approx. 25-30 mins or until brown and crispy. Enjoy while hot.
