We are finally on the brighter side of Winter, but that doesn’t mean it’s warming up just yet. If anything its going to get a bit colder first. Don’t worry though we have got you covered with this warming and nourishing soups. Perfect to warm you up from the inside and keep your immune system strong to ward off those pesky bugs.
A creamy satisfying soup, perfect for those with a bit of a sweet tooth. Bringing a great balance of complex carbs, healthy fats, a little protein and of-course wonderful super greens. Crispy kale makes a wonderful nutritious alternative to croutons, great if you like a little texture.
Cant get enough of those cruciferous veggies! They are packed with so much goodness, and this recipe is a great way to get your broccoli.
3. Spinach Soup
One for those struggling with iron levels. My partner makes this for me every-time I’m sick. Not only is it full of so so so much spinach, but immune supporting garlic and onions give it the more divine flavour. Not forgetting this soup has some sneaky hidden protein, great to support aching muscles during a cold.
4. Squash Soup
We grow so much squash every year I had to include this classic. In fact we love this so much it is our starter for Christmas dinner every year.
The spice in this will kick any colds but!. Honestly Ive never seen anything clear a snotty nose like it. Wolf down a bowl of this deliciousness, fall straight to sleep, and let your body heal.
6. Lentil Soup
Classic, and great if your watching your protein levels. This tastes almost just like a vegetable soup, but it is giving you that bit extra to keep you full and energised.
7. Tomato Soup
I cant go the Winter without some tomato soup, it’s just a moment from our childhoods. After walking home from school in the pouring down rain . Bliss
I love a good basic vegetable soup, simply for the fridge clear out. Its a satisfying, I make this meal from scraps feeling. I have beat the system…… not quite but I get excited anyway.
This was one a the very first meals I made in my own house, experimenting with changing my diet. It was an exciting and daunting time. I had very little money, and alot of my meals where made from food bank boxes. I didn’t know how I was going to heal myself with such little money, but I was determined.
I couldn’t resist with this recipe. Although I never had is as a child, but as someone who grew up with an obsession with American sitcoms, it still felt like a staple I had to experience. This version with rice noodles and homemade chicken seitan is perfection. The effort is totally worth the comfort factor.
