Only Fourteen More Sleeps
I am bursting with excitement as we have an exact date for the launch of the online course Cooking at Home with Veet. It is the 24th of November so only fourteen more sleeps. The course will be announced to the people signed up to the Upcoming Courses newsletter where you will be given a discount code. So don’t miss out, make sure you are signed up to that newsletter.
One of the things we do in the online course is sprout legumes and this recipe I have for you this week uses sprouted mung beans.
My cousin asked for recipes that are good for autumn and have some texture. So I devised a soup/stew that suits both autumn and spring to all people on both sides of this magnificent planet of ours. I hope you enjoy the recipe. The added sprouts and the wild rice add plenty of texture.
I used leeks and in the YouTube video I talk about the health benefits of leeks and how you can use all of the leek including the green bits and roots. Watch the Video Here.
