Winter Warmers

Winter is a great time to make your favourite vegetable into a tasty soup.Fry some onion and garlic in a pan.Stir in some of your favourite herbs or spices.Add a good amount of your favourite vegetable and a little water or stock.Simmer until the vegetable is just tender.Season with salt and pepper and a good handful of freshly chopped greens or appropriate herbs.Add some already cooked beans, lentils, rice or barley.Not only is this delicious but highly nutritious.If you like a sweet snack during the day try this.Gently simmer some rice, sago or barley in water or fruit juice until tender.Add some fresh or cooked fruit and top with some honey, maple syrup or sultanas and nuts.Once again this is a good warming healthy snack.Maggie
