Hello, and a huge warm welcome to my blog! My name’s Charlotte Jayne Jackson and I’m currently based in Shropshire, England. The main focus of my blog is fashion, food and adventures so if that sounds great to you stick around, take a look, and enjoy! ~ x
I wanted to share with you the best poached eggs on toast I think I have ever done! I mean…look at them 😍!!
I made these beauties for a friend the other morning and oh my God they turned out great!? I served them with smashed avocado (with lemon juice, salt and pepper) on fresh olive bread toast with a little vegan butter ~ so GOOD! It’s so basic but something I love to eat and it’s and absolute go-to for me at the moment! 🙂
Today I made a delicious roasted vegetable soup made with carrots, peppers, garlic and butternut squash! So YUM!
It turned out very successful so I’m going to share with you what I did:
Firstly I roasted my vegetables in the oven with two pieces of garlic leaving the butternut squash in for around 50 minutes, the carrots 40 minutes, and the peppers for 30 minutes. I then left them to cook for 10 more minutes.
Once cool, I peeled off the skin from the peppers and butternut squash and proceeded to chop everything up into small pieces ready to be boiled.
I then boiled a large pot of water and added in all of my chopped veggies~ I also added in two stock, the roasted garlic and cracked black pepper.
I left it to cook on a low- medium heat with the lid slightly covering the pot for around 20 mins.
After 20 minutes or so the veggies became very soft and the water was tasting like the roasted veg!
I proceeded to then blend the veggies into the water with a hand blender until everything was smooth and thicker ~
This was the result!!!
Success ~ It tasted amazing 😀
To serve, I spooned in some creme fraiche and added some salt and pepper on top. I then warmed some cheese scones up and had them with butter!
If you have any spare time and feel like a hearty homemade meal, I really recommend this soup. It’s easy to make and ridiculous tasty ❤
