Creamy tomato soup is my favourite! This easy recipe uses canned tomatoes rather than fresh, 
so is perfect for winter when tomatoes can get a bit pricey.

MENU 14

This week's menu features a lemony chicken pasta in a delicious (and virtually guilt-free) creamy sauce. Then there's the epic beef burger stacks - beef, cheese, bacon, salad and aioli sandwiched between kumara rounds… yum! Creamy tomato soup with pea and feta bruschetta is a super tasty meal too, and perfect on a cold winter's night.

My favourite meal this week is the pork and potato rosti stacks. They're pretty easy to make, a little indulgent and oh so delicious! We're also cooking fish tacos with edamame 'guacamole' (a great alternative when avocados are out of season) and a classic, warming meal of apricot chicken. Enjoy!
