My favourite soup at the moment is a spinach and coconut soup - very easy to make, too!  Melt a knob of butter in a deep pan, add a chopped onion, a couple of cloves of chopped garlic, and cook for 5 minutes, then add 500g spinach, a pint of chicken stock, salt, and pepper, and simmer for 2 - 3 minutes.  Add a can of coconut milk (full fat one is best), bring back to the boil whilst stirring, then remove from the heat and blitz until smooth.  Taste, adjust seasoning and serve  dribble

Olivia - must sound tat one - seems easy and sounds delicious smile

Re: Soup's on!!

Basic homemade  vegetable soup recipe:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 cups mixed chopped vegetables (try cauliflower, zucchini, green beans)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1 bay leaf
8 cups water and 3 cubes of vegetable bouillon OR 8 cups vegetable broth
1 14 ounce can tomatoes

Heat oil in a large soup or stock pot. Add onion, carrots and celery. Heat, stirring, for 3-4 minutes, until onions are soft. Add the rest of the vegetables and heat for just another minute or two.
Add salt, thyme and oregano, stirring to coat the vegetables well.

Add bay leaf, water or vegetable broth and bring to a simmer. If using bouillon cubes, add and stir to make sure they dissolve.

Add tomatoes, stir, and allow soup to simmer until all the vegetables are cooked.

Adjust seasonings to taste.

Remove the bay leaf and serve your homemade vegetable soup with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and some crusty bread or crackers.

I tried it in my home and it's really YUMMMYYYYYYYYYYY..

Re: Soup's on!!

A chicken soup recipe is also a great way to turn leftover chicken into a second meal. Try one of these easy chicken soup recipes or chicken stew recipes the next time you're craving a classic comfort food. Chicken noodle soup is undeniably comfort food for many people (especially when they're not feeling well) and this version gets a healthful update. Whole-wheat egg noodles add fiber and nutrients and reduced-sodium chicken broth cuts the sodium. By all means use homemade chicken broth if you have it.

Jerusalem Artichoke Soup.
So seasonal so nice. Carrot,onion,artichoke, chicken stock, salt and pepper. That's it, don't peel them the flavour is on the outside. Scrub them if they are muddy. Pass the finished blitzed soup through a sieve.

Re: Soup's on!!

I've started making soup quite often now as it seems like the easiest way to pack loads of veg into a meal, and it's becoming a bit of a hobby. The best one I've made yet though was a Jamie Oliver recipe chorizo and chickpea soup that I made today. Doesn't particularly look the best, but then what soup does?  tongue  Tasted incredible, an well worth all the chopping tongue
