I bought a new freezer the other day – and currently I seem to be doing my best to fill it up. The other day I made sweet potato and carrot soup. Today, parsnip, tomatoes and onions are roasting in the oven – and I am waiting to make stock and blend. And then freeze.… Continue reading Roasting vegetables for soup
