Home made chicken broth and red lentil is my all time favourite. Add parsley, black pepper and a dash of nutmeg.

Roasted squash and stilton.

I came on to mention squash soup, too, I'm making some today!

I don't have stilton in it, but make it spicy!

I like broccoli and stilton soup though.

We've got a huge pot of leek and potato on the go - sweat the leeks and potato for around 20 minutes until cooked, then add stock and creme fraiche, with a generous teaspoon of wholegrain mustard.

Other fave is butternut squash and sweet potato with red lentils with coconut milk, lots of chilli or harrissa paste and stock.

I had cream of Jerusalem artichoke soup recently on a trip. Yesterday, at the market, I saw there were Jerusalem artichokes available, so I bought some and made my own version today.
Tasty, but not for nothing have they earned the nickname "fartichokes" :-)

Fridge bottom soup is a family favourite. Chop up any combo of root veg that's lurking in the fridge. Squash ( you don't need to peel it) sweet potato. Carrots. Leeks. Parsnips. Add in anything else that's ending it's shelf life. Tomatoes. Celery courgettes. A few whole cloves of garlic and some woods herbs like thyme if you have it.

Large metal roasting tin. Veg oil. Seasonings of choice. I like cumin maybe or some chilli or even curry powder

Roast for about 45 mins until things are squishy and caramelised. Transfer into a stock pan. Add some boiling water and a veggie stock cube or two

Fast fingers

Simmer for about ten mins then blitz add more boiling water to thin down if you want. Serve with a bit of yogurt stirred in. Top with crispy fried onions and sage to make it decadent.

I don't follow many recipes but this is a squash and blue cheese soup recipe.

I used a whole squash, roasted until it was golden brown, stilton and parmesan that needed to be used up, sweet roasted garlic, shallots, stock, bit of milk to thin it. I didn't add tomato (as I've only just seen this recipe).

Made a lovely one last week. Ham stock but very weak and tasteless, carrots sweated with garlic, onions and root ginger, cooked then blitzed. It was lovely! I found if a soup needs thickening, a little dried potato powder, does the job very well!

I’ve literally just come home with a ham hough, leeks and potatoes for soup! I made a huge pot of minestrone on Friday but it’s been demolished already as we have builders in just now

Beetroot is nice and hearty. I cheat and use the vacuum packed pre-cooked ones, in natural juice (don’t use ones in vinegar!). I put 10 -12 of the small ones in a pan with a tablespoon of finely chopped fresh dill, some chopped pickled cucumber or gherkins, half a chopped fresh cucumber, and some water, then bring to the boil and simmer for 20 minutes or so. It should be really thick, so don’t overdo the water. Liquidise, add salt to taste, then serve in deep bowls with chopped hard boiled eggs in and a swirl of Greek yogurt on top.
Scrumptious. I first had it in Lithuania and the above is my attempt to copy the recipe!
