wholesome soups

From winter hearty soups which fuel and warm you from within, to hydrating and detoxifying summer soups, I encourage you to reap the benefits of soup through all seasons. Soups are a go-to meal for me as they tick so many boxes: cheap, quick, richly nutritious, they can be batch-cooked, slow-cooked, eaten pipping hot or chilled. You can feed a crowd, store for months in the freezer, plus they make a wholesome packed lunch – just pop into a flask. One of my all-time favourites is my Spicy Roasted Tomato and Lentil Soup. This month try Mushroom, Thyme & Walnut.
