We loved Game of Thrones when it was running, but on a serious note winter is a time when a lot of our guests struggle. Not only is it cold but the heating bills go up, clothes need to be warm and food needs to be hot. Winter is a more expensive time even without the presents. A lot of our guests and benificiaries get really ill and we worry about them.
NHS England has just brought in some new advice and they're offering free flu vaccines for 2-3 year olds and over 65's. So that will help with some of the illnesses.
If you don't fit into that bracket, heres a recipe for some warming soup to chase away the cold
Tomato and chilly soup (We know how to spell Chilli!)
1 chopped carrot
2 tablespoons of oil to fry with (not olive or coconut!)
1 ltr vegetable stock
1 can chopped tomatoes
1 tablespoon tomato puree
fresh red chilli – as much as you can bare, chopped
1 chopped clove garlic
4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
couple of leaves of fresh basil
In a large pan fry the carrot, onion, celery, garlic and chill in oili. Cover and leave to cook until the carrots have started to soften.
Add the vegetable stock, chopped tomatoes, whole cherry tomatoes and tomato puree to the pan. Cover and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Remove the soup from the heat and add the basil leaves and balsamic vinegar.
Blend the soup until it is smooth, or leave chunky
Serve with toast or cheese toastie
Apologies - this is a photo of a different soup we made with a side of roasted cauliflower!
