Mum's 'green' soup

This looks like green slime from a swamp, so of course goes down well!


1 large potato cut into small dice with skin left on
1 medium leek, sliced
1 clove garlic, smashed
80g peas
1/2 tin chickpeas, rinsed
about 6-8 sprouts or 80g kale
1/2 tsp mixed herbs including thyme and oregano


Put everything into a saucepan and add 2 1/4 mugs water
Bring to the boil and simmer until everything is cooked - around 18 minutes
Allow to cool before blitzing to desired consitency

Choc chip cookies


6 oz plain flour
3.5 oz coconut sugar
4 oz butter
around 60 gms sugar free milk chocolate


preheat oven to 150
cream the butter and coconut sugar together (you may need to break down some really hard lumps of coconut sugar, so be sure to check through!)
Add the flour and mix into a dough
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Put walnut sized balls onto a lightly greased baking sheet
Bake for 20 minutes (check 5 minutes before the end as coconut sugar can catch more quickly than refined caster sugar)
Cool on a wire rack

mini tarts

A great recipe for using up all those leftover things in the fridge. Don't throw anything away, not even a tablespoon of sweetcorn or the tiniest piece of chicken - they can all be used up in this recipe!


4oz plain flour
2 oz butter


Rub the butter into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add around 2 tbsp water and mix into a dough.
Roll out and cut 12 rounds to fill a large fairy cake tin
Bake blind for 15 mins at 180


You can choose whatever you like. Today I made coronation chicken and an 'all day breakfast' one:

Ingredients for coronoation chicken

leftover cooked chicken, cut into tiny chunks
curry powder to taste
Natural yogurt - enough to make the consistency of egg mayonnaise
a dash of cream if you wish


Mix everything together well

Ingredients for 'all day breakfast'

1 small hard boiled egg
6 thin slices quorn pepperoni cut into tiny chunks
tablespoon sweetcorn
enough natural yogurt to coat

Mix everything together

To assemble

Spoon a generous couple of teaspoons of the mix into a pastry shell. I topped the coronation chicken with chives and the 'all day breakfast' with snipped chives.
