Recipe Focus: A soup to root for this autumn!
As the leaves start to turn golden brown and the nights draw in, we’re thinking of delicious comfort food at Creamline. There is a whole host of fantastic fruit and veg in season at this time of year; think warming stews packed with root vegetables and fresh soup with rosemary and thyme.
In this week’s blog post, we’ve picked out one of our original recipes for those looking for a bit of spice. Parsnips have just come back into season and flourish as the weather cools – this bowl of goodness will be sure to warm you up. Why not order in your veg fresh from our Best of Local Greengrocer range?

- 100ml double cream
- Salt and pepper
- Fresh coriander, chopped
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
