Minestrone

It’s a good time of year for a big bowl of filling soup methinks. Maybe it’s just me (?) but I’m starting to want to eat lots and lots of veggies and move more and drink less and etc. etc. etc…. But let’s not be BORING about it shall we? This soup will encourage the…

Lentil, Frankfurter and Tomato Soup

I got an urge to eat frankfurters the other day. I vaguely remember them as being part of my childhood in some way. I think my sister used to eat them ‘raw’ and I think maybe we had them with white bread buns … nope that’s where my memory runs out – but there was…

Easy Roast Butternut Squash Soup

Brrr it’s cold outside isn’t it? But it’s my favourite weather – biting frosty air makes for gorgeous views and a need to keep going, therefore it’s perfect walking weather. I’m not actually a fan of long summer walks – I tend to get a bit hot and lazy and would then rather be relaxing…

Chunky Autumn Soup

Having just bought a house, and now hankering after a piano, I’m looking to make a few little savings elsewhere in our expenses. Obviously I won’t be giving up delicious food, but eating vegetarian is a tasty and healthy way to save a few pennies. I made a huge amount of this last Sunday, with…

Easy Broccoli Soup

This was lunch yesterday, a salad, plus a simple soup of broccoli, onions and garlic in stock, seasoned with salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg. That’s it. I used two whole heads of broccoli, and including the stalks too made it nice and creamy. I was reading something online about eating more simply, and this made…

Healthy and Hearty Tomato and Lentil Soup

Many of my work day lunches are soup. I find that having a delicious, healthy but hearty soup fills me up without making me feel sleepy and tired come 3pm, and it’s a good way of watching my weight, which is pretty tricky when I think about, shop for, blog about and make food all…

Swede, Carrot and Pea Soup

I do love my lunches. I’m lucky enough to be able to pop home from work for lunch, and it’s so nice to relax and have a bit of a zen-out. Never used that phrase before. Think I will from now on though, when appropriate. Today we had snow. But not the nice kind you…

Celeriac Soup

I know that’s not a picture of celeriac soup. It’s a beautifully perfect Lake District day we had a few weeks ago – prettier than a bowl of soup. Here’s the soup: I made this celeriac soup the other day and will be slurping it for the next few days, delicious and moreish as it is. It’s really creamy – although has…
