Curried Winter Veg with Feta

It's the perfect season at the moment for winter veg like squash, swede and parsnip.  One of my favourite ways to have these tasty veg is curried in a salad or, once roasted, whizzed up into a chunky soup with yoghurt and bread.

I also really love topping my noodles … Continue reading Really easy noodles
