Gorgeous organic carrots turn sweet and delicious when roasted, and add a mellow edge to a favourite winter soup.
I’m a huge fan of leek and I’m a huge fan of soup. The sweetness it brings to roast vegetables is to die for and works very well alongside chicken and mushrooms in a winter warming pie. With the leek in this weeks delivery I though I might try something I was yet to cook, leek and potato soup. Perfect of lunches, easy to freeze and after a hard days work, would be lovely to come home to with a slice of toasted sourdough with melted butter.
On the weekends my husband loves to cook up something different in the kitchen and not long ago he stumbled across a one pot chicken recipe on Taste. It was a relatively quick, easy recipe that involved grilled vegetables from a jar and a certain pre-spiced chicken from a a major supermarket. When everyone inevitably wanted that delicious dish again, and it was my turn to make it, I was lacking the exact ingredients and winged my own whole food, butcher and market version. Okay, and I also threw some extra vegetables in because that is my prerogative as a mother. Side note: it’s still an easy and scrumptious dish that everyone will love, and it’s even better for your insides!
