Tuesday Tutorial

We thought we would try something different this week and post a lovely winter warmer soup recipe as part of our Tuesday Tutorial.
This simple carrot soup looks delicious and guaranteed to warm you up on these cold winter days.



2 Tbsp Butter
2 Small Leeks, sliced
800g Carrots, roughly chopped
2 Tsp Clear Honey
Small pinch dried chilli flakes (optional)
1 Bay leaf
2.5 Litres Vegetable Stock
Soured Cream or Yogurt to serve


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Add the leeks to the pan, then cook for 3 mins until starting to soften. Add the carrots, honey, chilli (if using) and bay leaf, then cook for 2 mins.
  2. Pour in the stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 30 mins. Blend the soup in batches, return to a clean pan, then season to taste. When ready to serve, bring back to a simmer, then ladle into mugs. Add a swirl of soured cream or yogurt and serve with garlic bread or bacon butties.
