Winter is not my favourite season. One of the few things that makes it somewhat bearable is the license to eat all those delicious, warm comfort foods – curries, stews, pasta…yum!! As much as I love my salads and sushi all year round, I have been consciously seeking out warmer options that are healthy, too.

Mr A and little A were both fighting an evil winter bug (suspected ‘man flu’ – haha) a couple of weeks ago and a hot bowl of soup seemed like a good idea. It all started quite simply by tossing in all the vegetables in the house into a steaming pot of chicken stock. The result was spectacular and is worth sharing here.
