Recipe: Pumpkin, Chickpea Salad with a Lemon & Chilli Dressing

Even though winter has well and truly arrived in Melbourne I can’t seem to stop making up big batches of salad to take to work for my lunch. It’s possibly because the wait for the microwave is often rather long, but also just that I really do love salads! I love how they can be as simple or elaborate as you like, and the seemingly endless combination of dressings means that there’s no need to repeat flavours very often. It’s a nice way to also use winter vegetables other than just in roasts and soups, which is how they seem to be ending up for dinner! Anyway, enough rambling, on to today’s salad!

Recipe: Broccoli and Parmesan Soup

I’m a big fan of broccoli and would happily just eat a bowl of it steamed with some lemon juice and chilli, but this time I decided to try something a bit different and make a soup, as that’s all I seem to be eating! The addition of the parmesan adds a nice bite and the potato helps to make it creamier and denser. A big bowl of this served with some crusty bread made me a very happy camper!

But wait, there’s more soup! I decided to turn this week into a soup frenzy so I could share lots of different recipes as we head into the depths of winter. This one is something have been making a lot lately, it’s a simple and delicious way to warm up on a cold winter night and can include lots of different veggies so is a great way to use up whatever you have in the fridge. As an added bonus it takes very little time at all so you can have a tasty and nutritious meal ready in a flash – perfect!

Recipe: Cauliflower, Leek & Cannellini Bean Soup

I have a feeling this winter is going to be one full of soups for me, as now that I own a food processor the possibilities appear to be endless! I’m loving making up a big batch and then eating it for a few nights in a row with some crusty bread. Simple but it really hits the spot! The addition of the cannellini beans really help make the soup as they add bulk and protein whilst also helping make it extra smooth, creamy and delicious. Perfect!

Recipe: Potato and Leek Soup

It’s been a soup extravaganza at my place recently – this is the first winter I’ve owned a food processor so I’m loving being able to whip up big batches of soup in all kinds of flavour combinations. I had a few leeks in my organic veggie box recently so I thought a good ol’ potato and leek soup was in order. Creamy, hearty and delicious – everything you want on a cold winter’s night!
