Is there anything more comforting than a big bowl of soup? Packed full of plants and flavour, we’ve rounded up our favourite soups from our food experts, Ella Mills, Lizzie King and Emma Hatcher. All that’s left to do is pick the one you fancy and grab a spoon.
A good quality stock will make a world of difference to the flavour here. While some of us love the funk blue cheese gives, we know not everybody is a fan, so Emma has left the option to sprinkle it on top rather than blend it in - it tastes just as good.
Emma Hatcher describes this soup as the best way to use up any lurking veggies (and cream, actually). A creamy roasted carrot and parsnip soup, made with fresh ginger and served with the most delicious maple roasted crisps on top.
This winter warmer is the perfect comforting meal. Roasting the cauliflower to start with brings out the rich flavour and paired with garlic and miso makes this a flavour-packed dish. Soak up with some crusty bread or serve with croutons if you like.
Our friend Lizzie King has made us this Smoky Lentil and Tomato Soup, packed with plenty of veg and plant goodness to feed our microbes.
In Lizzie’s words “This soup is the perfect rainy-day brightener. And our gut health directly impacts our mood, so get on it."
An almost instant bowl of lip-smacking goodness, you will love the sour kick against the soft, sweetness of the mushrooms and greens. This is a fresh, restorative soup that is light and bright.
Add in some cooked shredded chicken or drop in some rice noodles at the end to make it a more substantial dish.
Try out your favourite one or try them all. Enjoy!
