Simple Soup, Pumpkin!

When it comes to food; I like to eat. Said every person ever. Well, nearly, but we'll gloss over those who say otherwise. And while I'm a dab hand in the kitchen, getting to grips with complicated recipes is more likely to get me hot in the head than under the collar.

So let me put it this way, I enjoy cooking but I LOVE to eat. And, that's where my recipes will take you, through a simple detour of cooking basics - getting that self sufficient vibe going, making from scratch for a satisfying and hugely scrumptious belly full. I keep recipes simple, for people who like to eat.

Our food provides us with a huge connection to the seasons, with the earth offering up homely favourites in the colder months and lighter options in the summer. There's huge benefits to doing your research, alongside discovering more of whats seasonal and local to you.

This simple soup recipe can be used with a wide range of vegetables, from year round golden child potatoes (they're the golden child, it's not a type of potato) through to seasonal favs like pumpkin - although apparently they're technically a fruit. Along with a tomato. But we don't have time for that right now.

Think of the following more as a formula, or a good base to make from. Taking little prep, this recipe is a winner for storing in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. It's delicious and can be a brilliant way to explore different flavours that go together.
