Autumn is approaching and it’s cooling up here in Scotland.
I’ve held off putting the heating on as long as I possibly could, but now I admit defeat and I’m putting it on for a wee while at the coldest points of the day and making some hearty winter soup.
A good old-fashioned, traditional Scottish soup.
WHAT ARE NEEPS?
The neep is something I should explain.
Neep is the Scottish name for a turnip and even more confusing we have a nickname for it too, the tumshie.
However just to confuse matters, down south in England they call these hardy winter vegetables swede and elsewhere they call these yellow flesh beasts rutabaga.
Whatever the name it is big and gutsy and brings a lot of flavour to a pot of soup.
Do try it, it’s healthy, filling, low in calories, kind on your budget and absolutely delicious.
