This month the cold has really started to set in. The British climate means that the tastiest fresh veg you are going to find at this time of year is squash and kale. We’ve been adding warmth to our evenings with vibrant soups packed full of goodness.

What We’ve Been Cooking | Seasonal Soup

We were supposed to work at our Crystal Palace Market stall and had bought lots of kale to make our Kosmic Kale Salad. Unfortunately we were all ill and so had to cancel. This left us with a kale heavy fridge! We decided to make an iron & vitamin A rich soup, to help us with our recovery.
