One of the lovely things about the darker nights and colder weather is that home-made soup is on the menu more often.
Tonight we had Red Winter Soup which packed full of Vitamin C to help ward off colds.
In our local Co-op this morning I found four tins of Chestnut Puree in the bargain bucket for only 34p each so I bought them all for future use in Chestnut and Bacon Soup
With root vegetables becoming seasonally cheaper, lovely lentil and vegetable soups can be recycled for days.
Make a huge pot and on Day 1 cook some chops or chicken pieces in it. On Day 2 add some sausages and on Day 3 eat it on its own with good bread and a chunk of decent cheese.
Raid your local butcher or delicatessen and ask them for ham bones for hearty Pea and Ham Soup.
And of course, let us not forget that Halloween is coming up. Don’t just carve pumpkins, scoop out the flesh and use it for Pumpkin Soup.
And the beauty is that most soup can be made from Storecupboard Ingredients! Put Soup into the ‘Search’ box for more souper recipes.
