Spicy Carrot Soup

Spicy Carrot Soup

I love this soup, it's so easy to make (especially if you grate the carrots in a processor) and so warming. The cumin and coconut milk give it a subtle indian vibe, without being over-powering.


SPICY CARROT SOUP

| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 15 Minutes | Cook Time: 20 Minutes | Total Time: 35 Minutes |


Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp Dried Chilli Flakes
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 600g Carrots, washed and grated
  • 150g Red Split Lentils
  • 1 litre hot Vegetable Stock
  • 125ml Coconut Milk

Instructions:


  • Step 1: Heat a large saucepan and dry-fry the cumin seeds and chilli flakes for 1 min, or until they start to jump around the pan and release their aromas. Add the oil, then fry the onion until soft. Then add the carrots, lentils, stock and milk to the pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 mins until the lentils have swollen and softened
  • Step 2: Blitz in a blender and serve with crusty bread

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
