On the subject of comfort food, nothing beats the one pot wonder! Not too much effort for lots of warming, feel-good, saucy flavour. Our current favourite is Sausage, Mushroom and Bean Hotpot http://bit.ly/2qol4n7 – made to be eaten on the couch in front of your latest TV binge. Enjoy… #blendability #familyandfriends #tastesgreat #comfortfood #goodforyou #autumn
