Diary of a Sutton Councillor

……..trying to save the planet one day at a time

Using up fresh veg

I get my fresh veg delivered from Sutton Community Farm, but I often don’t use it all before it starts to get past its best. My solution is soup.

I love soup, it is nutritious and almost any veg can be combined with other ingredients to make a tasty meal.

Today the veg I needed to use up was spinach. Combined with chickpeas, dried apricots (another leftover I was pleased to use up) and some spices I cooked up enough Moroccan chickpea and spinach soup for five portions, three of which went in the freezer, one to my elderly neighbour, and one in the fridge for tomorrow’s lunch.
