The natural sweetness of parsnips, dried fruit and apple juice make these delicious cupcakes a treat for those needing to follow a sugar-free diet or if you don't like overly sweet cakes.

This is a hearty, warm and healthy soup. Easy to make for beginners. I came up with this recipe when I was looking for a soup to make for my partner and I to take to work for lunch. I needed something that would last at least 6 portions and that would be suitable for freezing. I wanted to ensure I was keeping the budget low and the goodness high so opted for swede instead of potato and beans instead of meat. I believe this soup would be to everyone's liking, even the kids.
This dish is perfect for those warm summer days when the last thing you want to do is eat a warm meal. It's easy, cheap, and very refreshing.
