Thai Sweetcorn Soup

 

This is a delicious, hearty, soup - with the fragrant Thai curry paste, rich coconut milk, sweetcorn and rice - it’s bold, full of flavour and makes a really satisfying meal for lunch or dinner.

Ingredients to serve 4:

150g of white rice (or rice of your choice) OR leftover cooked rice

1 bunch (about 6-8) of spring onions, finely slice, widthways

1 chilli, finely chopped - remove the seeds if you don’t want as much heat!

3 cloves of garlic, peeled and grated

Pointed Cabbage Ceasar

This is a delicious way of enjoying a cabbage - charred, steamed tender leaves, crispy torn pieces of bread and a tongue tingling punchy garlic dressing! It makes a great lunch, light dinner or a side. The key is to be brave with the dressing - tasting it by itself will be full on and intense but once it’s drizzled over the cabbage and dished up with the crusty bread pieces, cheeze and olive oil - it’ll all make delicious sense!

 

1 pointed cabbage

2 cloves of garlic, peeled and grated

2 tablespoons of plant based mayo

This is a great way to enjoy veggies in the hot weather! Long skewers of delicious, fresh Summer veggies with a smokey sweet marinade either charred on the BBQ or roasted in the oven - we love then served with a fresh crisp salad or a summer slaw and crusty bread for a sizzlin’ Summer feast!

All veggies for these kebabs are completely changeable - if your want to leave out one of the ingredients or double up something - go for it!

6 Mushrooms, left whole

Chilled Summer Soup

Gazpacho, or chilled soup is a delicious, refreshing, tasty lunch or light dinner to enjoy in the hot weather - it’s full of fresh flavour and all it takes is a little chopping and blending. We’ve topped it with freshly chopped onion and cucumber to add a little crunch but its also lovely served with big crunchy croutons!

 

You’ll need a freestanding blender or a hand blender and a tall jug.

1 slice of bread, roughly chopped
