As the weather has taken a turn for the worse over the last few days, I’m sharing one of my favourite soup recipes. This is something I thought I would miss as a vegan; however the change from dairy cream to rice or soy makes no difference to cooking and tastes just as delicious. The fried mushroom garnish is optional; it’s also lovely topped with croutons and fresh parsley.

This week we’ve got a Meat Free Monday recipe from another member of staff at Ecotricity – this time it’s from Pay as You Go Assistant Hannah.
I know what you are thinking – how can pear and sweet potato work together? But it just does…
Give it a go.

Who would have believed that the humble beetroot would be recognised as a super food?
Beetroot’s deep, overpoweringly red juice has earned it the reputation as the most bossy of vegetables.
Although the leaves have always been eaten, historically the beet root was generally used medicinally for a range of ailments, including fevers, constipation and skin problems.
Beetroot is a good source of iron and folate (naturally occuring folic acid). It also contains nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants (notably betacyanin).
More info on the NHS Choices website.
This week’s recipe from Jodie is a classic filo parcel. Give it a go and enjoy a Meat Free Monday (or super food Sunday!)

This is a quick and super tasty recipe that is a firm favourite of my mothers. I’ve included a vegan ‘slaw too but you can serve this with any side of your choice. I also like it with simple herby new potatoes and a green salad.
