Soul Soup - Time to Grow


April was about taking the time to grow. And for me that meant indulging my wanderlust and travelling. Inspired by the beauty of Menorca, the food, the buildings, the sea I returned home refuelled and refreshed.

Wanderlust Soup - inspired by paella

glug of olive oil

onion finely chopped

1 clove sinely chopped garlic

red pepper finely chopped

500ml water

1 vegetable stock cube

1 tin chopped tomatoes

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp mixed herbs

100g paella/risotto rice

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Gently soften the onion, garlic and peppers.

Add 500 ml water and the stock cube. Add the tin of chopped tomatoes, turmeric, paprika and dried herbs. Add 100g risotto rice. Bring to the boil.

Reduce heat and simmer until the rice is cooked.

Add the lemon juice and chopped parsley.

Serve with crusty bread and eat whilst dreaming of far off places.
