No Croutons Required - The Winner for February and the Theme for March

The theme for February was to recreate a soup or salad from a restaurant that made a lasting impression. The winner of the copycat round is Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe with this lovely and filling Parsnip Soup with Walnut Ravioli and Carrot Cream. Johanna based her soup on a dish served at David Bann's located in Edinburgh. Congratulations Johanna!

I will be hosting the March edition of No Croutons Required. The theme for this month is chickpeas because chickpeas are probably my favorite legume and I can never get enough recipes ideas for the treasured garbanzo bean. Create a vegetarian soup or salad featuring chickpeas and send me your entry by the 20th of March.

Thanks Lisa for inspiration and to everyone who voted for my soup - now need to think about next month's challenge - so many great chickpea soups and salads out there - as we are heading into autumn I quite fancy some chickpea soup

Great theme Lisa, I will put my thinking hat on. I do love chickpeas. The trouble is getting them in the dish and not eating them like sweeties!

Shall see what I can do. Finally cooled down enough to enjoy cooking again, in these parts. Hope you're well, my dear.

Lisa said...

Thanks for your comment Lucy. I do hope you can send in an entry this month. You are so talented in the kitchen! I thought of you actually when I chose chickpeas as the theme for this month.

Chickpeas were the clear favorites in last month's My Legume Love Affair, which I guest hosted, so I will definitely have something to bring to the No Croutons Required table this time round.

Congrats to my favorite Green Giraffe buddy!
