Carrot, Potato and Kale Smoothie With Crispy Pancetta
Kilted Chef Craig Wilson from Eat on the Green has been working for months with the children of Udny Green School to promote healthy eating and encouraging them to grow their own fruit and veg and help prepare meals with their families.
Perfect for those cold winter days and perfect to hide all of those left over vegetables for your children! I cook my soup in a slow cooker so that I don’t have to think about it for a few hours, however you can cook it in a saucepan or roast the vegetables.
