Cock a Leekie Soup – Traditional Scottish Recipe

This traditional scottish recipe for cock a leekie soup is based on the traditional simple way of cooking cock a leekie soup. There are more modern variations of cock a leekie soup with carrot and prunes but my version is based on the old traditional way of making cock a leekie. Its really simple and easy to make and this recipe creates such a delicious healing, nourishing bowl of soup. The whole family enjoys it and although we didn’t frequently eat this growing up we will be adding it to our lunchtime recipes from now on.

Walnut & Date Loaf

I love a slice of this traditional walnut cake in the afternoon with a hot cup of tea, it’s the perfect pick me up before shcool run!
