Summer Minestrone Soup

Soup is not just for winter this summer minestrone soup is a simple celebration of fresh and bright summer produce and is a great summer meal!

My love affair with soup is well documented here on Krumpli and this summer minestrone soup is an ode to my garden. For some strange reason soups are often associated with winter warmers, and sure they are great at that. But they can also be the most wonderful light and vibrant summer meals.

Balsamic Mushroom Pasta

Mushrooms lend themselves so well to pasta dishes and this balsamic mushroom pasta is enriched with butter and Balsamic vinegar.

Few flavours go together like balsamic and mushrooms so this super simple mushroom pasta is a pretty safe bet on the flavour front, but it is just fantastic. It does not matter what is happening or how the day has gone it is one of those dishes that requires the cooking skill of a house brick to pull together and always tastes like a million dollars despite costing pennies.

Walnut, Mushroom and Spinach Risotto

There is just something about risotto that is comforting, this walnut, mushroom and spinach risotto plays with autumnal flavours for the win!

’ve waxed lyrical about risotto here a few times so I will avoid the same old ode to the joys of cooking a proper risotto when talking about this Spinach, Mushroom and Walnut Risotto… Well maybe I will just reinforce that it is pretty much the law that you must sup wine whilst stirring a risotto, so there!
