Winter warmer recipe: Cauliflower Soup

I love that this delicious soup has converted cauliflower haters to cauliflower fans. Perfect for a winter campsite! My family love this soup – it is our winter favourite. It is creamy and delicious, and best of all simple to make, with very few ingredients. You wouldn’t even know it was dairy free. I guess you could serve with cream, but it is so flavoursome – you don’t need it! Ingredients: one cauliflower 3 bacon rashers, chopped 1 large onion, chopped chicken stock 1-2 litres pepper and salt Method: Combine bacon and onion in large saucepan, cook, stirring, until onion

San Choy Bau Recipe

  San Choy Bau is one of those dishes my kids keep asking for again and again. It’s a great one for camping because the ingredients store easily (oyster sauce should be kept in the fridge), and you only need one pan. The same amount works as a starter for a large group (gem lettuce leaves work better for this) – or feed the family as an easy carb-free lunch. I normally use chicken mince but pork mince works well, too. It can be made ahead of time and reheated when you want it!  Ingredients 1 packet dried shitake mushrooms

Add 1/4 jar or 3 tablespoons of pesto. Fry off. You can add mushrooms, herbs and pepper at this stage if you want to. Add long life cream and
