Hearty soups are perfect for a cold winter’s evening, so I have gathered together 55 diverse soup recipes to suit all tastes. Fill your stomach with a steaming bowl of spicy noodles, cheesy vegetables, earthy lentils or creamy grains. All that is needed is a loaf of crusty bread to complete the meal.
There is nothing better on a cold winter’s evening than a large bowl of hearty, warming soup. Soups generally reheat well, will last for a few days in the fridge, and freeze brilliantly, making them the ideal meal for those busy days. And hearty soups, full of vegetables, grains and/or meat need little more than a chunk of crusty bread to finish off the meal.
We eat soup at least once a week during the cooler months (much to The Princess’s disgust), and I am constantly searching for new hearty soups to serve. I thought that I cannot be the only one needing inspiration, so have gathered together some great ideas from my fellow food bloggers. I hope you find a new favourite.A hearty #soup is the perfect meal for a cold winter's evening.
