After the chilly weather this week, all we wanted was a bowl of hot, healthy soup. Here’s two recipes that we love:


Chicken Soup

  • 2 knobs of ginger sliced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 leek diced
  • 700ml vegetable stock

Add the squash and stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins. Beat with a hand blender. Add chicken, simmer for 10 mins. Garnish with coriander and creme fraiche.
