Christmas time soup ideas πŸ₯£

[ Edited ]

O2 Community 2019 Advent Calendar

 

Hi everyone, 

 

When the skies are grey and the air chilly, there isn't much that makes me feel better than a hot bowl of soup. It's delicious, easy(?), heartwarming and also quite literally warming too, and the possibilities as endless!

 

Soup making

 

Pretty much anything can go in a soup: think of a vegetable, a pulse, meat, a bean or a spice, and chances are, it can be combined with a few other ingredients and turned into a tasty bowl of goodness! In fact soups are so versatile that sometimes it's hard to decide on which direction to take with them.

 

As I'm personally still just starting my cooking experiences and trying to evolve them from just heating up frozen vegetables and fish fingers in the oven, and in case of soups specifically, heating up some canned chicken broth in the microwave, it would be lovely to hear what you guys are making this Christmas period to feel inspired. Smiley Happy

 

What are some of your favourite soup recipes? Do you have any ingredient, seasoning, or tip that you love to use when making or simply eating a soup? What do you have together with the soup, if anything?

Re: Christmas time soup ideas πŸ₯£

I love soup but I`m no cook. So it`s open a can, put it in a bowl, heat it in microwave, and have it piping hot with crusty bread...

Favourites? Mushroom or vegetable. Being veggie, avoid chicken and beef, and tomato soup disagrees with me...

Thanks @Marjo for making me hungry so early in the day yum

Re: Christmas time soup ideas πŸ₯£

My favourite soup of all time is Leek and Potato @Marjo . I'm not keen on all the new 'odd' soups which appear for special occasions. Leek and Potato with crusty bread is simply the best. On the other hand my husband won't eat any other soup except tomato. innocent

Thanks for the suggestion @Cleoriff . It`s been ages since I had leek and potato soup, so it is going on my shopping list I`ll be giving to my carer for this week`s shopping. That`s Wednesday tea-time starter sorted... Bouncy

I’m not a veg fan so most soups are out but a cheap tin of Oxtail will do me! + crusty bread
