Beetroot & Sweet Potato Soup

Beetroot & Sweet Potato Soup

I will admit that I like thick soup. This recipe is based on one that I found in a lovely tapas book and tweaked a little. If you do not have sweet potatoes handy then just use ordinary potatoes. Also, you can add 2 cloves of garlic if you are so inclined and just use water rather than veg stock in the soup.

Irish vegetable soup

Irish vegetable soup

A traditional soup made by my parents and grandparents and a traditional winter soup in Northern Ireland and especially popular served as a starter to Christmas dinner. Pure, simple, wholesome comforting and natural food. As with all one pot dishes, it always tastes better the following day when all the ingredients have had time to marinate and got to know each other so if you want to impress, make it the day before serving. Enjoy.

Vegan chewy chocolate chip cookies

Vegan chewy chocolate chip cookies

The best vegan cookies I have ever eaten! I found this recipe online and modified it a bit and... wow! My friends with dairy or egg allergies and even those without any at all come to munch on these cookies when they are baked. Some of the ingredients are quite specific, such as flax meal and molasses, but I promise it is an investment in delicious cookies.
