My favourite Soups!

Soups are a great Winter warmer. Imagine the sun is shining, the air is fresh & clear and you've just coming in from a walk with that rosy cheek glow 😊

Then a bowl of homemade soup is just the thing! And, it's a great way to eat lots of seasonal veg as well.

Carrot and Leek Soup

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

400g leeks, trimmed weight
400g carrots, peeled and diced
1 medium onion
25 g butter
1 clove of garlic crushed
600ml stock
150ml milk (of your choice, I use Oat milk)
A dash of Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to season
Parmesan cheese to garnish

Preparation method

1- trim the leeks, leaving as much green as possible. Then half the leeks lengthways and chop. Place in a colander ti wash and drain.

2- peel and dice the carrots

4- chop the onion

5-Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add all the prepared vegetables along with the crushed garlic.

6- Coat vegetables in the melted butter and leave on a low heat to cook gently for about 10 minutes, stirring from time to time.

7-Pour in the stock, add some seasoning, bring to simmering point, cover and simmer very gently for about 10 minutes, or until the pieces of carrot are tender.

8-Liquidise the soup, then return it to the pan. Taste to check the seasoning, add a few drops of Worcestershire sauce and reheat gently. If you happen to have some Parmesan cheese handy, a little would be very nice sprinkled on each serving.

Curried Parnsip

Soup Serves 6-8

Ingredients

A knob of butter
4 parsnips
2 chopped onion
3 clove garlic, crushed
1 rounded tsp curry powder
800ml hot stock
200ml milk (any sort)

Preparation method

1- Peel, chop the parsnips.
2- Place the onion, parsnip and garlic into a heavy pan with the butter.
3- Cook slowly for 10 minutes with the lid on, so the vegetables gently absorb the butter.
4- Add curry powder to take up the fat.
5- Gradually incorporate the hot stock.
6- Simmer until parsnip is cooked.
7- Add the milk and bring to the boil again for a few minutes
7- Liquidise, and season with salt and pepper.

Note-

Soups are very forgiving, you don't have to be exact with quantities.
Add more stock if the soups is too thick, depending on your preference! You can use any milk, cows, soya, oat, etc.
Happy cooking! Beccy x
