Peanut, Sweet Potato and Lime Soup

  Peanuts are one of those brilliantly versatile ingredients which seems just as at home in a dessert as it does in a savoury dish.  They’re salty, punchy and full of protein and oils making them a brilliant backbone for this soup.  While the peanuts bring the flavour, the sweet potatoes offer a robust backing…

Roasted Garlic Soup

Something beautiful happens when you roast garlic for an extended period of time.  As the inner cloves heat they transform from their white, sharp raw lumps into the most beautiful golden gentle garlic paste.  The garlic flavour is still very much there, but it mellows into something that is frightfully palatable even on its own! …

Roasted Squash and Cauliflower Curry Soup

I’ve only recently discovered the joy that is roasted cauliflower in curry powder.  Having always been a fan of Aloo Ghobi, it was no surprise that this worked but WHOA, did it work.  This was a gorgeously silky soup packed with flavour.  The squash gave it a beautiful body and the curried cauliflower offered a…

This soup is deliciously filling, the potato and sweetcorn melding together into a velvety, creamy spoonful.  The sweetcorn itself packs a huge…

This is a fairly sweet soup – the pumpkin provides body, a subtle sweetness and that gorgeous colour, with the apple bringing in…

Carrot, Orange and Ginger Soup

Owing to an unfortunate case of phone-theft, I sadly only have one photo of this meal.  Fortunately, it was of the finished product.  Due to this I’ll break trend and be a LITTLE more specific with measurements.  Show much go on! The balance of flavours in this dish is very important; the acidic, slightly bitter…

Brie and Beer Soup

Introduction Yes, you read that correctly – these two independently wonderful things have finally been wed.  The creaminess of the cheese and meaty punch of the beer work so fantastically together, although it IS very rich so not one for huge portions.  I got the idea for this after seeing some recipes for Beer and…
