    Winter Warming Soup Recipes

    These winter warming soup recipes have been carefully created to be easy to make, even with numb fingers! More importantly, we wanted to just use ingredients you probably already have in your cupboards, because let’s face it, its freezing outside and no one wants to venture to the shop!

    Spicy Tomato Soup

    Very quick and easy, and guaranteed to warm your cockles on a cold winters day!

    What you will need

    Olive Oil

    Small Onion

    Dried or Fresh Chilli

    2 Tins of Tomatoes

    Some Tap Water

    Basil (Fresh is best, but dried if you don’t have any)

    Sea salt


    Crème Fraiche or Cream, – Totally optional


    To make

    Heat a table spoon of oil in a pan, finely chop and add the onion and chili (add chili to taste) to the pan and simmer lightly until soft

    Stir in both tins of tomatoes and add about a mug full of water, let it simmer for about half an hour, give it a stir every now and then

    Pop in some basil, and some salt and pepper- no measurements, just as you like it.

    Blend – easiest with a hand blender as you can do it straight in the pan.  If using a blender allow to cool first and do in batches

    For an extra smooth soup, pass through a sieve and discard any chucky bits.

    Now ready to serve, add a spoon of crème fraiche or cream and some basil for that extra chef like touch!
