I need soupy inspiration. I've just made Lentil and bacon for lunch. Love Pea and mint, chicken and vegetable etc but need some ideas. Maybe something with butternut squash as I have one in the fridge? What are your top three favourites to make please?

Nothing inspirational, but my top three are
1 red lentil and chickpea
2, chicken and thyme
3 French onion

Corn/ sweet potato chowder with smoked fish if it's there. Lots of fresh herbs and lime/lemon juice when you serve.

Daal with any leftover veg. Again, any fresh herbs/lime AND chili

Tomato soup

This is a great one for Butternut Squash
This is the other top favourite in our house- I use a tin of tomatoes instead of the fresh ones and use half the amount of spinach [[ http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/pork-recipes/scrumptious-spanish-chickpea-and-chorizo-soup Chorizo and Chick Pea soup]]

Leek and potato:
Simmer potatoes and leeks in just enough water and some butter, then blend with some stock. The potato makes it lovely and thick.

Spicy chicken noodle:
Shred some roast chicken and simmer in lots of water with tinned sweetcorn, shredded dark cabbage/leek, finely chopped chilli. At the last minute put rice noodles in.

Sweet potato and roast vegetable:
Roast chunks of sweet potato, red pepper and red onion in the oven with a splash of oil. Blend when done.

Thanks for this thread, haven't done soup for ages (DCs don't like it sad) but am in the mood now so will add ingredients to next shopping list for warming lunches when the fussy monkeys DCs are at school! smile
