Each week at our community garden in North Park, We like to cook a meal for all the volunteers who’ve helped out ( or even just popped in for a chat! ). In winter, We cook hearty soup, stews and curries. In summer, There’s salads, sandwiches and pasta! When we can, we’re using ingredients we’ve grown ourselves and meals are always vegan or vegetarian.
We’ve found the simple act of eating a meal together creates such a strong sense of community. Having that half an hour with a cup of tea and a listening ear is important to so many of the people who come to the garden.
February 4th marks national homemade soup day, A day well suited to make a big pot of homemade tomato soup 😊🍲
This recipe was specifically requested by volunteer Alan, Who asked for something not pumpkin based (Our pumpkin harvest has lasted slightly *too* long this year!). So we cooked up a pot of roasted red pepper and tomato soup. Sure to be a crowd pleaser and a favourite of all ages. This is warm, comforting and uses simple ingredients.
