Broad Bean Soup

Just what I needed today after a cold walk with the dogs and collecting leaves with my son for some leaf identification work we were doing.  Such a warming recipe, I served it up with a little drizzle of hemp oil but you could also use olive oil and perhaps some croutons.    mmmm!

Ingredients

3-4 cups of broad beans (frozen or fresh)

1 leek (chopped)

1 onion (chopped)

3 cloves of garlic (chopped)

1-2 red chillies (chopped)

2 tsp of cumin

1 tsp of tumeric

1 tsp of paprika

oat cream, or other dairy free cream ( a dash during blending, optional)

Green Smoothie Bowl

Add all the ingredients apart from the optional cream to the soup pot along with the stock cube and water to just over the vegetables.  Cook for 40-50 mins or until vegetables are tender and blend in the blender (be very careful when blending hot liquids, make sure the blender has the lid on securely) add in the cream of choice if you like to your desired consistency.  Serve with warm wholemeal bread or perhaps a toasted sandwich.

Any questions pop them in the comments below.

Crispy tofu & stir fried garden veg

image

Stir fried broad beans, kale and onions from the garden with some sliced carrots and some crispy five spice tofu on the top….mmmm…I feel hungry again! 😀

Vegetables for stir frying

seasame oil

Garlic

soy sauce

agave or honey

Block of organic tofu

Rice

Cut the tofu in half and keep halfing until you get little squares.  Place in a roasting tray or dish and drizzle with sesame oil, some slices of garlic, a dash of soy sauce and sprinkle of five spice powder.

Pop in a really hot oven, I’ve found a high heat is good for crispy tofu when almost done add a squirt of agave or honey to sweeten.  Chop the vegetables and stir fry, keep them crisp, with garlic and a tsp of seasame oil and cook the rice to serve.  I added a pad Thai sauce with my vegetables at the end but you could serve with just soy.  Enjoy!
