With carrot, onion, celery, potato, green beans and butter beans plus tomatoes, I really think this soup should be called Vegetable & Bean Soup not just plain bean soup. Throw in a bit of pasta and you could even call it minestrone – whatever the name it’s a great winter warmer.
Monday is the first official day of winter so I thought it might be a good time to add in this really hearty soup. Add a bit of crusty bread and it’s a total meal in itself.
Here’s a very Australia soup to try!!!! Let’s face it who else in the world, except for an Australian, would add vegemite to their soup. I think it looks delicious and definitely intend to make it this winter.
Seems like winter is approaching fast, especially with Melbourne temperatures dropping to around 12o this weekend, so it must be soup time. Probably my favourite time of the year, although to be honest I can enjoy a mug of soup nearly any time of the year. This recipe calls for minted frozen peas, but if they aren’t available, I sure you could add a bit of chopped fresh mint instead.
Not sure I’d bother making this for a family meal, but when life eventually returns to normal and we’re allowed to have people over again for a meal it would be a great entree or lunch dish. Stay well and safe everyone……………
I’m not a fan of cold soup, even in summer, so I’d be serving this hot on a cold winter’s night, but either way it makes a great starter for a dinner party.
This chowder recipe is a bit more economical than most. Using a prepared marinara mix, instead of other individual and more expensive fish, cuts the cost and also the time preparing it. Personally I’m not sure about adding cheese, could be worth trying, but I don’t see why you couldn’t leave it out either.
A polar blast has ripped through the southern states of Australia this weekend, so it was an easy decision to post another soup recipe. There’s nothing overly fancy about this one, it’s just a good tomato and vegetable soup – easy to make and great for cold weekends.
I’ve never made this Italian egg soup, but I like the idea that unlike a lot of soups it doesn’t need a long time to cook. It would be a great soup to make on a cold night when you want something hot and tasty very quickly.
Another soup to warm you in these cold winter months. This one is a rich, creamy, cheesy, cauliflower combo. Served with a dab of cream and the chives or parsley on top I think it would be good enough for a dinner party.
