Two likely lads, Rod and Ben, have come up with a series of scrummy summer and winter soups. They are wheat gluten and dairy free, and made with veg grown organically on Bickham Farm in Devon. If you’re bored of salads and Can’t face another sandwich then try a taste of Andalucía with the new gazpacho recipe from the range on offer. Served ice-cold it makes a refreshing lunch for long hot days (if we have them). Smooth and nutritious, this gazpacho is bursting with the goodness of plump sun-ripened tomatoes, cucumbers and basil, and made to a classic Spanish recipe.
Rod Hall, one of the duo, says” “We use beautiful full-bodied Passandra cucumbers and new spring onions fresh from the soil as well as handfuls of fragrant basil that grows in abundance here on the farm. The bread in the soup is handmade at the local bakery and, of course, all our ingredients are fresh and organic. It’s tempting to think of soup as a cold weather lunch but in actual fact our summer soups – from gazpacho and pea and mint to asparagus – are light and delicious and great on a hot day.”
Pots are 600g and have a RRP from £3.49 to £3.99. www.rodandbens.com
