With the cold weather forecast for the next week, I'll be having soup for lunch. I love homemade chicken, leek and garlic soup. Sometimes I add some carrot or red pepper just to make it look pretty. What is your favourite soup, tinned, homemade or from a carton?

My mum does an amazing cream of Jerusalem artichoke soup. It's the business.
I also like the Yorkshire Provender cauliflower & something soup.

Plain tomato and basil. Davina McCall does a lovely one that has carrots and celery in it too.

Ham and lentil soup made in my soup maker. I was given the soup maker a couple of years ago and resisted using it for about 6 months as I thought it couldn't do a better job than my big saucepan and hand blender but I was wrong. Smooth soups are just so much smoother.

Ham stock
Red lentils
A few chunks of cooked gammon.

20 minutes later - bliss in a bowl. It's on the menu for when Snowmaggedon strikes next week.

It is the food of the gods, the ultimate comfort soup, a life saver when ill. With lentils in the cupboard you can survive anything. Even an apocalypse.

Lentil and bacon! smile

Pea and ham - made by boiling a joint of gammon in water with some peppercorns and then adding a potato and an onion to the cooking liquid and when soft adding a load of peas - blend with a stick blender and add some of the gammon back in. It’s delicious and bright green - my sons call it witch’s soup!

I have several!

Celery & Stilton (I don't even like celery but it's delish!)
Carrot and orange
Tomato & red lentil

And soup for tomorrow is sweet potato and red lentil with a hint of curry. I had it at my friends house and though dubious at first (curry isn't really a favourite of mine), it was so delicious I'm going to make it tomorrow.

Celeriac and jerusalem artichoke.
Pea and watercress.
Cauliflower and caraway.
Fennel and courgette.

I do love a soup.

Celeriac and cumin

And the good old leek and potato or Vichyssoise in the summer.

Pumpkin /Butternut squash soup.

I love most soups but especially mushroom, tomato and scotch broth. Between this and the takeaway thread though, I'm going to have to get off the sofa and get some food on the go!

I call mine 'orange & red'

2 large sweet potatoes
2 large carrots
1 red bell pepper
1 red onion
1 cup of dried red lentils

Chop and add to slow cooker with veg stock and cook on low for 8 hours.

You can add various herbs to it if desired and saute the onion in a little butter first.

Easy and divine.
