This is a great winter soup, but it is also very full of fresh summer flavours!


This is very warming, and very green! (a bit like a pond) but it tastes awesome.

The ginger gives you some fire and is also an anti-inflammatory, which can help with nausea & digestive issues. Green veggies and garlic to help boost your immune system, (along with many other great properties of garlic) and the fresh coriander, lime & ginger give it an delicious fresh Asian taste.


Tip of the day: if you often get colds try adding more garlic into your diet! It can certainly help reduce the severity of colds or flu.


Souper Greens Soup


600ml veg stock (boullion powder)

Small head of Broccoli roughly chopped

200g spinach

This recipe was given to me by my dear friend Claire Herbert many years ago...

I have since made countless batches, usually for work (so I didnt eat them all myself!)

People would actually bring old brown bananas into work especially for me so that I could bake muffins for the office!!


So here is the recipe...


Makes 12 big muffins

250g flour - I use half wholemeal and half Gluten free plain flour but you can mix up what you prefer.

2 tsp Baking powder

100g Molasses sugar or dark brown unrefined

Handful of pumpkin seeds (optional, or other seeds will do)

Handful of raisins/sultanas or chopped dates (your choice)

100ml coconut oil

4 very ripe bananas mashed

2 eggs

2 Tbsp Milk


Set the Oven to 180 degrees

Mix Flour, baking powder, sugar, seeds, sultanas together. In a separate bowl mix all the wet ingredients - oil, eggs, bananas - then mix together.


Fold altogether quickly, divide into a greased muffin tin. ( I use the silicone muffin trays - they are brilliant!)

Bake for 20 mins

Place on a cooling rack

Enjoy! x
