This I know to be true, I’m all set and ready to start my next novel, good for my brain but very bad for my weight if I don’t eat properly. With that in mind I have decided to give you the recipes for my favourite comfort food that is amazingly also good for me and helps me cut down on snacking.
Creamy Cauliflower & Carrot Soup
Serves 3-4 (30 ins to ready)
1 onion – chopped
3 large carrots – chopped
1/2 head cauliflower – chopped
950ml chicken/veg stock
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Hot Chilli Powder
splash of Worcestershire Sauce
Black Pepper to taste
- Melt the butter in a pan add onion, carrots & cauliflower over a low heat for 5 mins
- Add chicken stock, bring to the boil then simmer for 15-20 mins.
- Remove from heat, add nutmeg, chilli, black pepper and blitz to as smooth as you like. Gradually add cheddar until melted.
- Serve. ( I have fresh granary bread with mine)
Now I can get back to my writing without having to worry about snacking all through the evening.
