Yummy vegetable soup. This makes a large quantity of soup for several meals and/or freezing.. I like to make this and eat it throughout the week for lunches and snacks. Also, there is always plenty to share with a friend's/neighbor's family.

This is a lighter alternative to ground beef chili that tastes just as good and is filling and packs a protein punch!

This dip/spread makes a nice change from the usual hummous or guacamole. When in temple mode I like to eat it spread it on rice cakes to give eating bread and butter a rest. Makes a nice starter with homemade flat bread served together with good quality olives.
