How appropriate that January is National Soup Month (who does decide these things?) and it is very cold and snowy!
Soup is frugal, filling, usually low-fat, low calorie and easy to make, so you can't go wrong!
Soups can be made from left over cooked veg or meat, bits and pieces from the 'fridge that need using up, veg that has been reduced in the supermarket or excess veg from your allotment. There's a few things that you really need in the house all the time to make soup really easy; potatoes (used in some recipes to thicken soups), big white onions, stock cubes, some spices, black pepercorns, tins of tomatoes and a liquidiser or stick blender.
Here's 8 of my own favourite recipes for soup - enjoy!
