Soul Soup - Time to Grow

June 20, 2017


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

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

Reduce heat and simmer until the rice is cooked.

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