Remember my Blanching Carrots post the other day, well last night for tea I had the last of the soup made with the blanching water, and very nice it was too eaten with a couple of the Wholemeal Scones, one 


  1. Hello, I have a bag of the same scone mix, have you got any other suggestions of how it could be used up? Thanks

    1. Scone mix can also be used as a lovely pizza base, cook for a few minutes on it's own and then add your toppings.

      I also sometimes make a Veggie Cobbler, simply using mini scones as a replacement for dumplings. The gravy seeps into the bottom of the scones in a wonderful way and the crisp top (sometimes sprinkled with a bit of cheese) means you don't need any crusty bread with your stew.

      Of course you can just make scones and play around with additions, chilli flakes, some cheese and finely chopped onion or go down the sweet route by adding glace cherries, some raisins or sultanas or any other dried fruit or a mixture of all of them. I even added peanut butter to the mix once and I liked them, although Lovely Hubby is peanut butter phobic and refused to taste them .... which of course meant all the more for me :-)

  2. We quite often have a savoury scone with soup, it makes a nice change from bread. I havent had the Wholemeal mix just the plain white. Your soup looks tasty, we eat lots of soup from whatever needs using up in the veg drawer.
