Roasted Cauliflower & Mushroom Soup

I think this is my favourite soup I’ve ever made (and that’s saying something, because I really love my Creamy Mushroom Kale Soup!) The texture and flavours of the mushrooms, thyme and roasted cauliflower compliment each other so well. It’s rich without being too heavy. It’s the perfect soup to have with a crusty piece…

Slow Cooker Chicken & Ginger Congee

Congee is one of my all-time favourite comfort foods - my mom always refers to it as the Chinese version of chicken noodle soup. Chinese people traditionally have it for breakfast, but I like it any time of day and often make a big batch in the morning before I head out to work so that I can come home to a big warm bowl of it for dinner. It's also an incredibly cost-effective meal to make - all you need is 8 parts water to 1 part rice to get a perfect congee. I like to use chicken thighs because they get delightfully stringy and swirl nicely into the rice after a day of slow cooking, but pork tenderloin and white fish like tilapia are also great substitutes.
