When it comes to the colder months of the year you really have to love homemade soup. Generally it is cheap to make, warming, comforting and not that bad for you at all! I enjoy soup at work and some nights for tea with a warm crusty roll. Delicious.With soup I tend to look in the fridge and see what I can use up.
Today, it was a cauliflower. Cauliflower isn’t my favorite vegetable, unless covered in gooey cheesy sauce! But I was really surprised how delicious my soup was. And I am very pleased to know that there is some left over for lunch tomorrow at work – yey!I love how lazy you can be with soup, I roughly chop everything up and chuck it into a pan and then add stock. You can fry your vegetables first but I tend not too because it still tastes just as yummy.What’s your favourite winter warmer soup?! Leave me a comment at the bottom of the page.
