Another Autumnal day calls for the last of the fail-safe and easy soup recipes we use. This time it’s with carrot, orange, coriander, and ginger. The recipe name may sound as if the cooking will be a large production. It isn’t. Especially if you use cheats, as I often do!

Foraging For Food – Picking Blackberries

Foraging for Our Food!

On Sunday we had a lovely afternoon that didn’t cost us a penny. We’ve been foraging for food – picking blackberries!

Easy Homemade Frugal Tomato Soup

Are you looking for an easy, homemade, vegan-friendly, frugal tomato soup? Well, you may have found it!

Frugal And Healthy Spicy Lentil Soup

Wait! Don’t be put off by this recipe title! I know, I know, ‘lentil soup’, even with my strategic inclusion of the word ‘spicy’ (and don’t let that put you off either, as you don’t have to have it spicy) isn’t particularly appealing.

However,  even my meat-loving husband gets excited when I serve this, which tells me all I need to know. This is one of the two soups that I make most often and we eat it as a main meal, either with sandwiches or yummy bakery bread.
It’s so quick and easy to make. Try it and let me know! Continue reading “Frugal And Healthy Spicy Lentil Soup”
