As soon as it starts getting chilly outside, we bring out the soup pots and start stirring together some magic. I’m not a big fan of light, thin soups and want them to be hearty, chunky so that they can double up as a meal for dinner. Who wants to make another thing when you’ve already spent time making one dish amirite?

The most popular soup recipe on the site has been the Creamy Vegetable Soup and the Tonkotsu Style Veg Ramen hands down! These are gloriously comforting and filling. You only need some chunky bread on the side with the creamy veg soup and it’s a meal that will instantly warm you up.

My personal favourites are also the Mushroom Soup where I add a secret ingredient to bulk it up, the Chinese Hot and Sour Soup that’s a flavour bomb, the creamy Cauliflower Chowder that’s surprisingly addictive, the Thukpa for that spicy hit and the Chicken Enchilada Soup that’s so easy that you’ll be making again and again!!
