During the colder months, I like to have something hot to eat at the office as I tend to get cold sitting behind my computer all day! As I'm also trying to eat less bread, I find the combination of a warming soup and a hearty salad does the job of keeping me full until I get home for dinner.

All these recipes are simple and delicious. Why not play around with our blends to see which is your favorite combination of spices? I have a food flask which keeps these warm until lunchtime or take to work in a plastic tub and heat up in a microwave if there is one.
This is a very simple way to make soup - put all of the vegetables, including onions into the oven. Roast for around 30 mins then simply transfer to a pan, add stock and whizz up! You can vary the vegetables according to what's in season and what you have in the fridge.
A hearty soup that keeps you filled up until dinner. Delicious but subtle flavours, using either our Goan or Korma blends.
The addition of coconut milk in this recipe gives it a lovely sweetness and creamy consistency.
The heartiest of all our soups, this is almost a meal in itself, especially when paired with a big chunk of bread (it's too good a combination to leave out, even if you are trying to avoid bread!)

Our salads are filling and can be eaten cold. I have a sort of a tiffin in which I take mine to work. Similar ones can be found here. You can also take snacks in these and they don't leak!
Cheap and cheerful - add loads of fresh herbs.
I tend to make this on a Sunday so it's all ready for the week. When short on time, use pre-cooked lentils
This is my favorite work salad. I often add beetroot or substitute the carrots for parsnips. As above, use pre-cooked lentils for a quicker recipe.
Hopefully these recipes will keep you going until the warmer weather arrives.
