With its mild taste and soft texture, dhal has got to be the most family-friendly Indian dish! I first introduced dhal to Lucien when he was a toddler. As a twist on the classic recipe – and to bring a touch of sweetness and creaminess to the dish – I added some creamed coconut and butternut squash. He absolutely loved it! Fifteen years on, and this recipe is still a firm family favourite. We make it at least a couple of times a month!

If you’re a mushroom lover (like me) then you are going to love today’s recipe. It’s a delicious Cream of Mushroom Soup that’s really cheap and easy to make.

Instead, it’s made with simple, pantry ingredients. Head below to check out the recipe.
Today I’m sharing a delicious miso soup that has quickly become my new favourite ‘working from home’ lunch. It takes just 10 minutes to prepare and is so warming and filling. It also happens to be packed full of nutritional goodness. This is one of those meals that makes me feel really energised… like I’m ‘zinging’ on the inside! It’s been a big hit with the family too. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
