Leek & Mushroom Soup

Roasting or frying mushrooms until they become a deep golden brown really brings out their incredible flavour which gives this soup its intense natural richness… you wouldn’t believe it wasn’t laden with double cream!

Ingredients to feed 4 for lunch or a light supper:

Harissa Butternut Soup

This is a comforting, warming soup with a fiery harissa kick which goes brilliantly with the sweetness of the butternut squash. We love keeping it warm in a big flask and serving it with rosemary flatbreads as part of a autumn picnic.


Serves 4



1 butternut squash

3 white onions, roughly chopped

3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped

A glug of olive oil

Husk Baked Sweetcorn

No prepping, no faffing, it’s as simple as wash… bake… eat!


This is a brilliant, foolproof method of cooking corn in the oven if you haven’t had the chance to light the BBQ or the summer weather is a little on the wet side or you just fancy a simple tasty lunch. Of course, it is just as amazing on the BBQ, you just have to remember to rotate the corn 3 or 4 times throughout cooking.

We’ve suggested a few optional seasonings which go brilliantly with sweetcorn but it’s totally up to you!
