Winter warming soups
The great thing about soup is the simplicity of popping a bunch of healthy and tasty cooked ingredients into the processor, pressing ‘Go’ and voila! You have a filling and nutritious meal. It warms you up from head to toe, can be cooked to suit any palate and best of all, can be frozen for a quick meal at a later time.
We have some fantastic soup recipes to inspire every home cook and have put together a list of our all-time favourites.
