Warming Winter Soup Selection
There’s nothing tastier or more satisfying than a steaming bowl of soup, especially on a cold winter’s day. I love the hearty broths and almost stew style soups I grew up with as much as I relish a more contemporary puréed vegetable version or a spicy Asian style broth.
If you’re not a cook, soup is a great place to start, it’s easy, forgiving and can be very quick too. Or if you want to eat more consciously or healthily, you can really pack in lots of nutrients into your soup. Then of course, it’s a classic way to use leftovers or those vegetables that lurk in the back of the fridge, not looking quite there best anymore – put them in a soup and nobody’s the wiser. A soup can help you out in busy times too, make a big pot and it’ll keep you going for a few days, the flavour intensifying. Or of course it’s perfect for freezing so that even in the most hectic of times you’ll have a hot, satisfying and healthy meal to look forward to. You might have noticed I’m a big fan of this most versatile of meals, and here’s my selection to keep you going through these cold, dark winter days.
