Winter Broth

The winter is starting to kick in now and the temperature has really turned so it’s important to keep warm with some healthy wholesome meals that all the family can enjoy.

I have been making this winter broth for years and it’s a great one-pot dish that hides vegetables well; its really simple to make!


• 450g off lean mince beef
• 2 Large whites onions
• 300g carrots
• 300g of runner beans
• 4 celery sticks chopped
• A good splash of Worcester sauce
• A squeeze of tomato puree
• 300g of macaroni pasta 


Fry off the minced beef in a non-stick pan until brown and then add to the slow cooker. Crumble in some beef stock cubes and then add in all the vegetables finely chopped, carrots, onions, runner beans, and celery. Mix together and add 500ml of boiling water. Then add the Worcestershire sauce and tomato puree and leave for a good 4/5 hours to cook through.

Keep checking and occasionally stirring. 10 minutes before serving boil up some macaroni pasta and then add this into the broth.

Scatter over some chopped parsley and serve in bowls. Add some warm bread to the table and the bottle of Worcestershire sauce in case anyone wants more.

A perfect winter days family meal that can be left for people to serve themselves as and when they get home too.

Sweetcorn Fritters

One of my favourite recipes and packed with goodness perfect for a snack or for tea served with salad and Greek yogurt.

What you need

120g Spelt flour (not found in all supermarkets, Tesco and m&s)
1/2 tsp baking powder
100ml of milk
1 egg
100g of finley chopped onion
400g of sweetcorn
100g of chopped spring onion
15g of parsley
20g of fresh mint chopped
1 tsp of cumin.

How to make

Prepare the mixture

Place the flour and baking powder into a large bowl and mix together. Whisk in the beaten egg and the milk until nice and smooth. Add in the onion, spring onion and the sweetcorn. Stir. Then add in the chopped mint, cumin and parsley and mix together well.

Heat a large frying pan with olive oil

Heat a large pan with olive oil, it needs to be hot before frying your fritters.

Fry the fritters

Using clean hands make flattened fritters. From this recipe you should get around 8 good size ones and then fry 3 at a time keeping them well spaced in the pan.  Remove onto a plate and add into a preheated oven when they are golden brown and carry on.


Service with Greek Yogurt mixed with a spoonful of honey and salad leaves.
