Golden Carrot and Turmeric Soup

A rich and nutritious golden soup for the start of Autumn!

Ingredients:
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled
4 or 5 small new potatoes, skins on, chopped small
5 large carrots or equivalent, scraped and chopped
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
5 cloves of garlic, chopped
a handful of cashew nuts
1 to 2 heaped teaspoons of turmeric (we used this one)
about 1 teaspoon of black pepper, freshly ground if possible
1 tablespoon of olive oil
water to cover ingredients well
seasalt to taste

Place the ginger, potatoes, carrots and onion in a large pan and cover well with boiling water. Bring back to boil and add the cashew nuts and garlic. While the vegetables are cooking mix the turmeric in the olive oil with the black pepper and leave to stand.

Once the vegetables are tender, add salt to taste and place everything – veg, liquid, nuts, turmeric/oil mix – into a blender and blitz until smooth.

Pour into bowls and squeeze some lime juice over the top. Yum!

Goodfella's Vegan Pizza

Yes. Frozen vegan pizza from GoodFella’s. It’ll be on supermarket shelves in April, retailing at £2.50, Vegan Society trademarked, and we can verify that it is delicious!

It was perfect on a day like this, when there had been some trudging through snowdrifts.

Then the courier made it through with our pizzas!

Vegan Pizza!

The crumbled falafel topping makes the pizza dense and satisfying and goes so well with the spinach, always a sturdy inclusion to Italian food. The hummus drizzle is garlic-y and cheese-y and perfect too.

We paired it with leek and potato soup, and with each pizza serving two, that made a big and filling meal.

This will be a great dish to have on standby in the freezer for busy (or lazy!) days.

Okay snow, we’re ready for you again!
