The inspiration for this African inspired soup came via my sister in law. I was staying with her last week and came home from work to find a delicious pot of a sweet potato and peanut stew had been made. Lucky me! I've been hoping to share a peanut butter soup recipe for some time … Continue reading Sweet Potato and Peanut Soup
I've been looking forward to sharing this recipe for ages! I had to wait though as I like to use the pears from the tree in my garden. Well, I say I like to use them. I have so many that I need loads of different recipes and ideas to prevent them going to waste. … Continue reading Sweet Potato and Pear Soup
Such a quick and easy make, with pretty impressive results! I'm not sure I should really call this a recipe. It's really a tale of a solitary supermarket soup pack and some assembled bits and pieces I had in my kitchen. I do love a good shortcut, so occasionally turn to a soup pack when … Continue reading Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup: a super-pimped soup pack!
The weather is definitely more autumnal now which is great for soup lovers like me! I must confess that I look forward to Autumn every year, just because the food is so good. This is another recipe that was given to me by the Hospitality lecturers at Perth College UHI. Thank you! I was dying … Continue reading Spanish Style Three Bean Soup
My apologies for the lack of contact over the last few weeks! My insistence on a decent summer holiday resulted in a slight social media break. Although this created a bit of soupy silence, I have returned with some great new soup ideas and will be sharing the resulting recipes with you soon. The first … Continue reading Strawberry soup – a cheat’s version!
I thought I'd give the weather a bit of a nudge this week. If I make a spring soup, our wintry weather is bound to go - isn't it? Well, we'll see. I fancied a lighter soup with a good range of fresh veg, so opted for a spring vegetable minestrone. Most recipes for this … Continue reading Spring Vegetable Minestrone
This tasty recipe came to my attention in quite a roundabout way, not that that’s a bad thing. My partner received an electronic Christmas card from New College Lanarkshire and this recipe was one of a few they included. That’s my kind of card!I only have a note of the recipe so can’t embed a … Continue reading Spiced Parsnip Soup
Although this is titled Sophie's soup, the recipe came via my friend Jane from Life on a Small Island (a blog definitely worth following). When Jane and Sophie were at Edinburgh College of Art, they used to make this soup when they 'needed to feed 10 folk on £2.50'. (We've all been there and it's … Continue reading Sophie’s Potato and Sweetcorn Chowder
My latest soup is the result of a rummage in my freezer, initial disappointment and a bright idea. Most of Scotland has been shivering under a huge snowfall and, as roads and rail links were closed for a while, many shops have sold out of fresh vegetables. I know it's just a blip and isn't … Continue reading Spicy lentil soup
Look at the colour! What’s not to love about such a green and vibrant soup? The last two recipes I’ve shared with you have been really hearty and could definitely be a meal in themselves. Today’s soup is much lighter and more easily eaten as part of a larger meal, although I will be having … Continue reading Pea, spinach and mint soup
