15-minute miso soup

Made from fermented soya beans, miso packs a real punch of umami flavour. You can’t make miso yourself, so look out for it in store.

Classic sourdough

This artisan-style loaf requires a bit of effort but it’s so worth it! Sourdough uses a wild yeast starter in the place of store-bought yeast, it’s a lot healthier for your gut and gives the bread a nuttier flavour and aroma.
