Six easy soup recipes

Hot or cold, thick or clear, meaty or vegetarian – we’ve got a soup recipe you’ll love

Soup is the ultimate comfort food. These are some of our favourite soup recipes:



1. Ginger-spiced carrot soup

With 680g puréed carrots and two cups of peas, this creamy-smooth vegetable soup is supercharged with vision-enhancing vitamin A.


2. Chicken-and-dumpling soup

A real feel-good dish for those cold and wet winter days.


3. Bloody Mary soup

Rather than incorporating the vodka into the soup, we think it’s a nice theatrical touch to let guests add it themselves at the table and decide exactly how much kick they want!


4. Pea and ham soup

This speedy soup makes for a hearty, warming meal on cold evenings. Cooking the gammon along with the peas adds extra flavour – and saves on washing up too.


5. Hearty mussel soup

Cream gives this delicious seafood soup a luxurious feel.


6. Broccoli and Cheddar cheese soup

This creamy soup is a real feel-good dish. Plus, it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare!
