What better way to spend St Patricks Day than cooking up a traditional Irish feast of brown bread and a warming bowl of vegetable soup. Both recipes are simple to make and work perfectly together as a lunch or dinner, especially on cold days! The soup will also help us reach our 5-a-day, while the wholemeal flour used in the bread will keep us going right through the day!
Don’t forget to add the signature cross to the bread before cooking, a superstition dating back to the 1830s, believed to keep away evil and protect the household!
