There’s a chill in the air, the old ‘do we switch the heating on yet?’ debate is rearing its head and pictures of porridge are appearing on twitter each morning! It can mean only one thing – time to get cooking soup! Soup is one of my favourite Autumn warmers. It’s so quick and easy – a tasty filling dish from just a few ingredients and it freezes well so there’s always a speedy lunch available.
If you love soup, then you’re bound to find some inspiration in this week’s Ten at Ten…
First up we have a lovely roasted yellow courgette soup from The Crazy Kitchen. I often cook with green courgettes but haven’t tried the yellow ones much. They look really pretty so I’ll definitely give this a try!
If you have courgettes of the green kind around the house then why not try this courgette soup from Keeper of the Kitchen? Just a few ingredients can make a lovely soup.
Turkey meatball tomato risotto soup – it’s a mouthful to say and a mouthful that I would like to try! The ultimate one pot warming meal from Hungry Healthy Happy is bound to be a big hit.
I couldn’t do a soup round up without visiting Soup Tuesday! This Norwegian leek and potato soup caught my eye as it looks so deliciously creamy – but there’s no cream added.
It’s about this time every year that my slow cooker makes an appearance and is pretty much in use until Spring! So, I was pleased to discover this slow cooker split pea and ham soup from Jenny Eatwell’s Rhubarb and Ginger. I love it when cooking is that simple!
A good old classic in our house is butternut squash soup – the children love the colour as well as the taste. So Dom’s organic roasted butternut squash soup will shoot straight to the top of my must cook list this week, especially as there is a recipe for thyme focaccia to accompany it. Delicious!
It’s fair to say that the sunny Summer days are behind us now, but what better way to wave it goodbye than with this Farewell to Summer Soup from How to Cook Good Food? What a lovely vibrant colour!
I know lots of you have been following the 5:2 diet recently so this low calorie cream of mushroom soup from London Unattached may be of interest to you. Swap your cream for Quark and you have a really tasty, creamy looking soup.
I’ve never tried cauliflower chowder before but this recipe from The English Kitchen has me tempted. With the addition of bacon and cheese, I really like the sound of this.
And finally, you can’t have a good soup without something to dunk in it! I think this basil and parmesan soda bread from Gourmet Mum fits the bill perfectly.
