Super Soups

Split pea and celery soup.
It's the tail end of autumn, and it's starting to get cool here.  By that I mean the temperature is in single digits in the morning when I wake up.  I realise that in England and places like that this morning's six deg C temperature would have been considered quite mild, but here in the subtropics we call that cold.

To me, that means it's the perfect time for soup.

Soup is quick to prepare, nutritious, and can be refrigerated or frozen and reheated. For people like me who have limited energy for cooking, but need really healthy food it's perfect.

It's simply a matter of throwing the ingredients in a saucepan with stock, simmering until everything is tender, and then blending if you want a smoother texture.

Here are some of my favourites:

  • Split pea and celery.  
  • Canned five bean mix, frozen diced vegetables and canned tomatoes.
  • Chopped sweet potato, red lentils, canned tomatoes, lemon juice and curry powder.
  • Ham bone, split peas and carrots.
  • Bacon and canned tomatoes.
A big pot of any of these makes up several tasty, warming meals for the cold weather.

So lovely, lupies, what are your favourite easy winter warming meals?
