Stuffed vegetables are often my go-to for meals where lots of sides and salads were being served and everyone else is having some kind of meat.

I’m so excited that it is finally asparagus season again in Australia!

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!

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!

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!
