I'm getting this recipe in slightly ahead of time - you may need it on the 1st December. I adore veggie haggis, so St Andrew's day is a good excuse to indulge. Like many others across Scotland, I'll be tucking in to a feast of haggis, tatties and neeps on the 30th November and will … Continue reading Haggis Soup (vegetarian and vegan)
This recipe is a bit of a bonus. I hadn't planned on sharing a new recipe today but was so excited about this one, I just had to try it. It comes courtesy of my friend Alison. We were at a party on Saturday night and started talking soup. I know, I know! We did … Continue reading Broccoli and Coconut Soup
My latest soup has a vintage twist. The recipe comes from my family heirloom - the Scottish Women's Rural Institutes Cookery Book! This was oringinally my Mum's - given to her in the 1950s when she worked for the printer. It was really popular at the time and getting a copy was considered a real … Continue reading ‘Vintage’ Oatmeal 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!
Courgette glut? You're not alone! Aida suggested she had a few courgettes going spare and asked if anyone wanted some. Never one to turn down free veg, I obviously said yes. I didn't really expect two bags of the largest courgettes I had ever seen - all organic and grown on her own allotment. Thank … Continue reading Courgette and Potato Soup
Yes, you heard me correctly - Avocado Soup! It's delicious! This is another soup that is easily adapted and great for using up bits and pieces languishing in your fridge or store cupboard. Not enough chickpeas to make a topping and create a broth? Replace with white beans, or potato, celery, carrots - whatever you … Continue reading Avocado Soup with Harissa Chickpeas
This soup definitely deserves an exclamation mark. It is just so good! It is a lifelong favourite and I find myself longing for a bowl as soon as the weather heats up. This is a chilled soup. I remove it from the fridge about 5 minutes before serving. If it's too cold, the flavours don't … Continue reading Gazpacho!
Hungry? In a rush? No time for much food prep? Egg drop soup is the dish for you! This soup came to my rescue one evening last week - I was late home, had only a few items in my fridge and couldn't be bothered shopping. I actually felt quite nostalgic when I made this. … Continue reading Egg Drop Soup
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
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
