A rich and warming soup full of vegetable goodness, perfect for an evening snack, and can be stored in the freezer. I love a hearty thick soup, but this can be thinned to your liking. If you have any lovely Turkey juices or stock, this can be added to give a really rich flavour.

20g Merchant Gourmet tin chestnut purée:
435g lemon juice:
1 tsp dried rosemary:
1 heaped tsp ground coriander:
2 tsp ground black pepper:
1 tsp vegetable stock cubes:
2 Cream and chopped parsley, to serve:

Dice carrots and parsnips into medium chunks. Add to the saucepan an toss well. Add 50 ml water and leave for 10 minutes to simmer, stirring occasionally. Stir in coriander, rosemary and black pepper and cook for 2 minutes.
Keeping heat low, add 1 litre water, chestnut purée and vegetable stock cubes. Stir well and simmer over a low heat for 15 minutes until all the vegetables feel tender.

Hi Alex, I'm really sorry I didn't get to see you and thank you in person earlier when you dropped off the printer. Your kind donation is really appreciated from us all here at Winnersh Primary- Pam on
Your technician had great difficulties getting here today? Ascot to Windsor on Race Days is an horrific drive. We left him to his labours and went outside to do some gardening. He obviously found the oven & hob too difficult to clean and gave it up. He must have carried spares in his van because he then installed new ovens, hob and extractor for us instead ! As always, thanks for your friendly super services ?you take so many worries off our shoulders.- David on
