PEARL BARLEY & CHORIZO SOUP

The mixed veg gives this soup a minestrone vibe, but there’s a nice bit of chorizo to add flavour to the base, and hearty barley – instead of pasta – for added bite. Make a big batch and freeze in portions to enjoy another day. You’ll be pleased you did.

Everything you want in a bowl of ramen: it’s sweet, salty, sour, soft, crunchy and fresh, with a little bit of heat. The dark miso paste adds the salty element while the white miso adds sweetness.

This tasty, traditional Scotch broth recipe is brilliant for using up leftover lamb and veggies. It works well with lamb steaks, too. Simply brush the steaks with a little oil, sear in a hot frying pan for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, then slice up and use in your broth.
