‘Cooking On A Bootstrap’ is currently on offer for £6.99, down from the RRP of £15.99! Which is a blessed bargain! Not sure how long this offer lasts – I don’t make the rules – so snap it up before it goes back up again! Get it here! Thanks! Jx
This recipe is adapted from ‘How To Eat’ by Nigella Lawson, who in turn adapted it from ‘an aromatic, velvety, manilla-coloured soup at Le Caprice’ in the late 1980s. The bootstrap adjustments and pricing are my own. The original recipe includes half a leek, which I have omitted out of laziness; I didn’t have one in and didn’t want to take a trip to the shop especially, but if you want to stick more closely to the original, slice it and add it at the same time as the onion. If chestnuts are a step too far outside of your comfort zone, replace with peanut butter instead; this variation benefits from a hefty whack of chilli and lemon, turning it into an entirely different meal, but a delicious one. Serves 4-6 from 48p each.

‘Bootlegged’ is a new series on Cooking On A Bootstrap, taking new or favourite cookbooks and recipes, and making them cheap and simple. First in the series, Jack talks about the impact ‘How To Eat’ by Nigella had on her early cooking life, and recreates two favourite recipes, on a budget.
Hi folks! Just a quick heads up that my lovingly termed ‘difficult second album’, A Year In 120 Recipes’, has been reduced to just £4.99 down from £18.99! I’m trying not to smart at the online equivalent of finding myself in the Woolworths Bargain Bin, and instead figured that you might want to know! It’s here for a limited time only, and I love this book. It’s a bit glossier than A Girl Called Jack and Cooking On A Bootstrap, but the recipes are still simple, budget, and delicious, just wrapped up in a pretty bow. Please note this is for the KINDLE version only! Have a lovely weekend!
