I made a butternut squash soup the other day and was like - wow, I can't believe how quick, tasty and easy this is.

Now I want to make more!

Can you give me your favourite soup recipe please?

i roast butternut squash, make that into soup

last night i roasted a pumpkin - the soup made out of it is also delicious, i added a leek, a potato and an onion

Butternut squash and smoked bacon is lush.

I mostly just make up a vat of veg soup with whatever we have in, currently have a roasted butternut squash, roasted pepper, celery and tomato one on the go. It's the only way DS2 will eat any of that veg.

I'm a soup noob, so basically I can just soup up any vegetables I want? Using the same process of softening veg/stock/season/blitz?

I think so, try some websites, i like to add plenty salt and pepper and spices.

Pretty much!
I like that Swiss Bouillion powder in for flavour.

My two favourite soups are a simple but delicious one:

Delia’s Leek, Onion and Potato Soup

and a slightly more complicated but equally delicious one

Hugh F-W’s Lentil and Bulgur Wheat Soup

Chicken broth- bones from roasted chicken for stock, boil up, strain, add some barley groats, cubed potatoed, chopped carrot, celeriac, leek.

Lentil soup/ yellow split pea soup on smoked ribs ( I don't do ham shank as too difficult to strip the meat)

Tomato soup- chopped tomatoes, carrot, brown onion, blitz with a spoon of creme fraiche.

Jamie Oliver's butternut squash soup with garlic-tastes absolutely awesome.

Beetroot soup- boil beetroot, take out when soft(ish), grate, add cubed potatoed and boil up, serve with creme fraiche.

There's awesome recipe for Muligatawny soup on BBC Good Food

Lentil, carrot and smoked bacon.

1kg of carrots
3 medium onion
3 garlic cloves
Pack of red lentils
Pack of cheap smoked cooking bacon (this looks horrid but works a treat)
Single cream (optional)

I literally soften the veg, fry off the bacon, add the lentils, add stock and bring to boil then simmer until 'done'.
Blitz it, taste and season.

The above costs about £3 and can stretch to 8 decent portions and freezes really well.

3 large leeks
2 fennel bulbs
Chop up
Sweat in butter till soft
Cover with a litre of veggie stock
Season with s&p
Blitz till smooth & creamy.
Soooo DELISH! smile

My Brother made a delicious soup the other day and as is usual when I see him and have soup I had to guess the ingredients! Coriander? no. Lemongrass? No. Ginger? yes. Onion? yes. Carrot? yes. Well how come it is gree?. Eventually he admitted it was marrow. So gorgeous!
