    Default What is your favourite winter food?

    Ever since the weather turned yucky, I can't get enough of yummy warming home made soups with chunks of home made break for dunking. I must be making soup three or four times a week......good job the rest of the family like it too

    What winter comfort food is everyone else eating? And yes I know winter doesn't officially start until 1st June.....but it certain feels like it at the moment

    Some kind of slow cooker soup.
    A good combination of things that have been simmering for hours and can easily make a hot snack.
    Right now I have a chicken-cabbage-onion-rice-garlic-other veggies thing going.

    At the moment we are really loving Pesto Minestrone

    Fry a finely chopped onion, leek and a stick of celery together until golden. Add 2 carrots and as many crushed garlic cloves as you like (about 5 for me). Cook for a few minutes and add a chopped sweet potato. After a few mins add 1 and 1/4 litres of hot veg stock and a tin of chopped toms. Season, bring to the boil and let simmer for 10-12 mins. Add 2 chopped courgettes and cook for 5 mins more. Then add 3/4 cup of frozen peas, cover and cook for 5-10 mins then add a tin of beans ( I like borlotti), simmer for a few mins then add 3 tbs of pesto, simmer for 5 mins and remove from heat. Serve with grated parmesan (or whatever) and crusty seed bread.

    Yummy, scrummy! My kids are asking for this several times a week at the moment!
