I am firmly in the camp that believes the only interesting thing about quinoa is the spelling. But once in a while against my better judgement I end up buying a pack and then have to look at it every time I open the cupboard.

This soup is so good. Much better than I thought it would be and so versatile as it tastes equally good hot or cold. And of course the colour. It is so easy to go completely Nigella about the colour!

Their crunchy exterior and tasty parmesan interior is great side to a stew/bolognaise and they are perfect for dipping into the thick gravy or tomato sauce. Best eaten straight out…

Notwithstanding Nutella’s irresponsible adverts of being a healthy breakfast for children I have to admit the stuff is pretty good and could quite happily have a spoonful on my morning oats.

The hazelnuts come through in taste and texture and you are able to manage…
