Up to last week I'd never tasted wild garlic. As a child I remember traipsing around back roads between Waterford city and the seaside village of Tramore searching for gooseberries, blackberries and all those wonders. I wouldn't count it as one of my favourite pastimes but the sweet smell of blackberry pies or gooseberry fool were the rare delights of my childhood that I do miss from those excursions.
Do you prefer making a soup out of broccoli than having it as a side vegetable, or is it just me? I do as you can add so many wonderful vegetables and nuts to it for a more interesting flavour.
Having it as a side vegetable, unless smothered in a 'creamy' sauce, just doesn't really light my fire. Since I know it's so healthy for me I try to eat it regularly so when I'm in a hurry I tend to just make up this easy soup below. Also as a snack afterwards I chew on a roasted walnuts with the cuppa of herbal tea.
We've been so busy the last while it's been hard to get to everything. Our new site is beginning to take shape and now it's time to get all our recipes into a fit state. So here's to lots of deliciousness coming your way. First off an autumnal and warming soup, very welcoming coming in home leaving the biting chill behind.
