Tuscan Bean Soup with Pesto and Soda Bread
This is a fabulously healthy meal of a soup, great for cold days and a good way of using up vegetables in your veg box.
Mini Pork Pies
There is a fabulous butchery chain in North Yorkshire called Newboulds who make the best pork pies on the planet, especially their Midgets. These are mini pork pies and I loved these growing up in Redcar, I still buy some when I’m up visiting friends and family
This Indian soup is a whole meal in itself, adjust the chili if you prefer a milder version. Delicious with naan or cumin scented scones.
Roast tomato, chicken and lentil soup
This soup was made up from leftovers in my fridge. A few sad looking tomatoes and red peppers, left over chicken from a Sunday roast and some lentils to add extra protein. It was delicious.
On a warm summer’s day these will remind you of holidays in the Med; Greece, Turkey, Morocco, Israel, wherever. They are delicious and lovely to make for snacks, lunch with a Greek salad and to share with friends.
Summer Canapés with Edible Tulip Petals
I love edible flowers, they add colour and texture to many different dishes and create a ‘wow’ factor on even the most plain, simple dishes. So when Janice at Greens of Devon emailed me to say they were launching edible tulips this spring I was so excited it was silly.
Roast veg with cous cous and harissa canape
This is a lovely recipe to make at home as you can use some of it for lunch or as a superfood salad and serve the remainder as a canapé that evening.

Super dooper easy canapes that look spectactular served on edible tulip leaves from Greens of Devon.

These taste delicious and there is a great cheat here too. You could make the tikka yourself or you could buy it ready made, up to you. The edible tulips are available from Greens of Devon.
