bowl of red pepper black garlic soup (from sainsbury's)

Easy roasted red pepper and garlic soup

I had an email from Sainsbury’s – would I like to try some black garlic? Never heard of it, but too curious to resist an offer like that – it’s aged white garlic and according to the pack has a ‘molasses-balsamic flavour’. That sweetness and mellowness would go well with my go-to soup recipe – […]

Roast tomato and red pepper soup

This is a favourite and a really good way to use up tomatoes or peppers that might be getting a bit too old for salads. Cut tomatoes in half and roughly chop the peppers – I usually use red and/or yellow, but have used green in the pic below which worked just as well. Pile […]
