Yes, you can have too many carrots. I made this recipe recently in a bid to use up at least some of my carrot glut.

This is a good, basic recipe that is really easy to adapt and modify to your own … Continue reading Cauliflower and broccoli soup – as you like it!
Chestnut Soup I originally shared this post last January but I thought it would be good to share it before Christmas, as it really is a great option for the festive period. I also updated it with some ingredient swaps to ensure it is vegan friendly. My original post is below and I have just … Continue reading Chestnut soup
