chicken soup#7. Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Kristin from shares her homemade chicken noodle soup recipe: Most chicken noodle soups use wide egg noodles, but I like to use macaroni because it’s easier to scoop up with a spoon, especially for children.

If you’re not feeling the best to begin with, you want the act of eating your soup to be as undemanding as possible.

pea soup#8. Roasted Garlic and Pea Soup

Everyone has a few recipes in their repertoire that they can turn to if they want something fast or cheap. This recipe for roasted garlic and pea soup is both.

The only reason the soup can’t be called a 30-minute meal is because the garlic takes an hour to roast, but if you do that the night before you want to make the soup, then you can have this soup on the table in about 20 minutes.


potato leek soup#9. Roasted Potato Leek Soup

This potato leek soup recipe called Roasted Potato Leek Soup is adapted from Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics by Ina Garten. This is what potato leek soup wants to be when it grows up – roasting the veg and a splash of white wine make all the difference in this recipe.

Don’t worry if you can’t find rocket or want to leave it out to appeal to younger palates, the soup will still be good without it. If you want a lighter version, you could also leave out the crème fraiche.

soup recipes#10. White Bean and Bacon Chowder

This hearty White Bean and Bacon Chowder has a creamy texture and the salty bacon finishes it off nicely.

The longer the soup sits, the more the flavours will develop. Soak your beans overnight or buy tinned ones to save time.


chicken miso soup#11. Chicken and Miso Noodle Soup

This Chicken and Miso Noodle Soup is a great soup as it’s very healthy but also has lots of flavour. It’s equally good without the chicken for the vegetarians among you and I often substitute either rice noodles or udon noodles for the egg noodles.

It is perfect for a light mid-week dinner as it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare from start to finish.

This soup feeds 4 adults, you can freeze portions easily once it has cooled to room temperature.

This Ham Soup with Dumplings is a great one-pot meal. You could even freeze the cooking water from boiling a ham and reheat it to make the soup at a later date.

It uses soup mix, a dried mixture of pulses that you can buy in your supermarket. Very handy for bulking up a soup or stew and adding fibre to your diet.
