Notes & Variations on Hearty Butternut Squash and Red Onion Soup

Be careful not to burn the garlic as the bitterness will really taint this dish! Also, you could substitute the butter beans for more sweetcorn if you didn't like them as they are just for a thicker texture really. Hope you enjoy making and eating this.

Spicy Beanburgers with Courgette
This has turned out to be by far our favourite new recipe of the Summer season. It was so exciting to make our own burgers for the first time, and SO easy.

Thanks to our friend David_d from the Ooffoo community for suggesting we give them a go.
