Stay warm this winter, wear hoodies and eat soup!


Brrrrr.... is it just me or is it beary cold these days?
Well at least it's a good time to make a big pot of soup. I thought i'd share my simple but special recipe for A Winter Bear's Soup to warm you up and keep you cosy! First things first, you need to go shopping - so grab your funky organic string bag and head to the shop or market to get all these yummy ingredients:

(serves 6 hungry bears)

2 large onions
2 garlic cloves
6 parsnips
2 sweet potatoes
1 big pinch of ground nutmeg

1 veggie stockcube
Salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil

Are you ready - well put a lovely apron on incase it gets messy and lets get cooking... Chop onions and garlic cloves. Peel & chop sweet potatoes. Scrub & slice parsnips. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil, then add the vegetables, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Cook for a 5 minutes. Mix the veggie stockcube with about 1L of water and add to the pan. Cover & simmer for about 20 minutes. Once the veggies are tender, then blend the soup or mash till smooth. Remember to check the seasoning!

Our big Mr T pint mugs are great for soup!
So best served the teeandtoasty way in a pint mug with home-made wheaten bread, (well it's mum-made really!) ENJOY :)
