Winter vegetable and shallot soups

Add roast shallots and butternut pumpkin to chicken stock, and serve with a dollop of sour cream and chives. Or simmer shallots and spinach in chicken or miso stock (a dash of ginger is good too).

Warm salads

Roasted shallots with boiled or roasted baby beetroots and garlic make a good winter salad tossed with spinach and walnuts.
