3 easy winter warming soup recipes

There is nothing better than coming home and enjoying a freshly made warming soup in autumn and winter so here are three of our favourite recipes.

Mushroom Soup

1 red onion, finely sliced

500g of fresh sliced mushrooms

3 tablespoons of butter

400ml of beef stock

Bay leaf


Chedder Cheese

Fry the mushrooms and onions in the butter, add some oil if the butter starts to burn, then add the stock and boil for 10 minutes, remove the bay leaf, blend and then add chopped parsley and some grated Chedder cheese. 

Leek and potato soup

2 large leeks cleaned and sliced

5 small potatoes pealed

4 rashers of bacon

Olive oil



Chicken stock

Fry the bacon in oil, fry and then put on a plate with absorbent kitchen paper. Then add the leaks to the pan with some butter and fry on a low heat, allowing the leeks to sweat until transparent, add the bacon back to the pan, potatoes and chicken stock to the pan and simmer for around 20 minutes, with a bay leaf and herbs of your choice. Remove the bay leaf and blend, adding chopped parsley before serving.

Red bean soup

Tin of red kidney beans

1 small onion finely chopped

2 small carrots cubed

400ml of chicken or beef stock

Chili – as much as you like

Gently fry the carrots and onion, then add the stock and chopped chilis to the pan and cook over a medium heat for around 10 minutes, then add the kidney beans and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the carrots have gone soft. Then blend half of the mixture and then add this to the unblended soup and serve.
