Simple pumpkin soup

Some friends gave us some pumpkins recently from their overly productive allotment. This soup is so easy to make and is best kept simple! Ingredients 1 white onion 2 cloves garlic 600g pumpkin 400mls vegetable stock 1/2 tsp red chilli flakes Salt and pepper Oil Crème fraîche (to serve – optional) Method Finely slice the […]

Roasted garlic soup with chilli oil

The soup is pretty creamy so the chilli oil drizzle works really well by cutting through the rich soup. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of garlic used here – the roasting process will lessen the garlic flavour. Ingredients (serves 2) For the roasted garlic soup: 3 large bulbs of garlic 1 white onion 1 […]

Vegetarian wonton soup

This is surprisingly simple to make. I think the key to this is making a light and refreshing broth with a richer, more punchy wonton filling. The minced and cooked down mushrooms with plenty of soy that go in the wonton wrappers should help create this balance. Ingredients 4 cloves of garlic (minced) 1.5 inches […]

Roasted red pepper and tomato soup

This is a very sweet soup – when you taste it you’ll be amazed you have not included any sugar. Keep any leftovers for a pasta sauce – simply reduce the mixture by cooking for a while longer and add more chilli flakes to liven it up a bit. Ingredients (serves 4) 4 red peppers […]

Ginger and lentil soup with kale

Mushroom and Tofu Thai Broth

When I’m stuffed up with cold (as I currently am), there is nothing I want more than a spicy and fragrant Thai broth. I love mushrooms and it’s great that you can now buy fresh shiitake mushrooms in many shops. Shiitake mushrooms are now being produced in the UK and can be bought online via […]

Curried Soup and Lager Bread

In the UK, curry and lager go together like two peas in a pod. This age old marriage is a perfect balance of naughty but nice. While this recipe for curried soup and lager bread is slightly off the grain, the flavours are still prominent and suit more of a lunchtime meal rather than the […]

Broccoli and Stilton Soup

This is a luxurious soup that is very rich. If you are serving it as a starter, do not fill the bowls too much as it is quite filling. I like to make it quite thick, but if you prefer your soup more watery, simply add more milk. With soups, it is nice to keep […]

Quick and Easy Thai Soup

This Thai soup makes a great easy mid-week supper and is wonderfully satisfying as well as healthy. If possible, buy silken tofu that hasn’t already been flavoured. The Cauldron Original Tofu works perfectly for this dish. Ingredients 1 pack of tofu Noodles (any you prefer) Shitake mushrooms 1 large onion 3 cloves of garlic 1 thumb of […]

Guthrie’s Green Soup

This is the perfect soup for a Monday evening after a boozy weekend. The veg will alleviate that guilty feeling while the halloumi will quench those salty, cheesy cravings. Ingredients 1 onion Bunch of spring onions Sprouting broccoli (into chunks) 3 garlic cloves 1 bunch of curly parsley 4 small potatoes (chopped into 2cm chunks, […]
