Melissa’s Soup Toppings you’ll love

  As a self-confessed soup lover, I am always looking for ways to add extra flavour, crunch and excitement to my soup. So here are 5 ways you can spruce up yours: 1. Halloumi Croutons:   not technically “croutons” as there’s no bread involved but these are delicious cubes of crispy fried halloumi. Simply chop, fry in a little butter or oil & cook to your desired crispiness.  Get the recipe. 2. Make a fridge raid herby drizzle:  Whizz up any herbs or left over salad leaves you’ve got that need some love with some olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice & a little salt in a blender & drizzle on.  Try this recipe. 3. Roast some veggies:  Depending on what soup you’re making, you might like to roast a little of what you’re using for ultimate texture & flavour on top.

Belly-Warming Baking With Jasmine

Food from the oven serves two purposes in winter: first keeping your belly warm from the inside out with freshly baked, roasted or braised home cooking, and second keeping you cosy with the the heat kicking out from the oven while you prep.

Caramelised Orange and Pistachio Mung Dal Cake

Oranges are a blast of sunshine from neighbouring southern Europe in the midst of winter. This is a cake made of mung beans — yes, you read that right.

Rosemary Mung Bean Bread

Another mung bean extravaganza, this bread is a gamechanger for so many reasons. It’s wholesome, easy, simple, gluten-free, high in protein and affordable — oh and nut-free, which is a rarity when it comes to gluten-free baked alternatives!

Chai Spiced Cranberry Cookies

From my most recent Christmas repertoire, these sweet spiced biscuits remind me simultaneously of lovely gatherings with family and friends and of my travels.

Blackberry Apple Ginger Buckwheat Cake

Another apple cake, this one has some extra heat thanks to the  ginger, and a beautiful mottled appearance thanks to the the classic pairing of apples with seasonal blackberries. Serve hot with tea and mmmh…
