Not a definitive list - but definitely some of our favourites!


We'll add new ones, as and when, and wherever possible we've acknowledged the source and/or whoever recommended it. 


To be frank, it's very handy to refer to the recipes on the tablet or dreaded smartphone, when you are in the kitchen, cooking.

(Main ingredients - Carrot and Celery)

 sues soup

Delicious – with thanks to Sue Davies (SO much better than the stuffed tomatoes!)


1 onion sauteed in butter.

chopped 2 carrots and 1 stick celery.
Lots of pepper




600 mls of boiling water with a stock cube dissolved in it - Knorr Bouillon aux herbes et a l'huile d'olive or whatever is the UK equivalent...

Chopped chives

Sprinkle of parsley if you have some.

I tend to batch make this so up the ingredients quite considerably. It then goes through the liquidiser, gets bagged up as individual portions and goes in the freezer.
