January is National Soup Month in the US. Listed below are 10 of the soups which we are keen to try.
1. First up one of my favourite combinations cauliflower and blue cheese. Delicious magazine gives this a spin by roasting the cauliflower to intensify the flavour in this Roasted Cauliflower and Stilton Soup. Of course it lets me use up the last of the Christmas cheeseboard Stilton as well!
2. Easy and cheap for saving those pennies during the coming year this Tomato and Red Lentil Soup from All Recipes packs a protein punch without the expensive meat.
3. How do you make 250g of chicken feed 6 people? Make this filling Chicken and Black Bean Chowder from Jamie Oliver.
5 An absolute classic that can be served hot or cold, this is Delia Smith's Leek, Onion and Potato Soup
6 This Red Thai Curry Noodle Soup from Olive Magazine is big on taste but low in calories if you made a resolution to lose weight (again!)
7 Rich, filling and can be made ahead of time. This Seafood Chowder is from House and Garden.
8 Made with the best Somerset ingredients this Cheddar and Cider Soup is a locally sourced recipe for me. From the Guardian newspapers Nigel Slater this soup is part of a whole page of autumn ingredient ideas. Serve it as the Italians serve soup, ladelled over crusty bread in the bottom of the bowl.
9 Packed with healthy nuts this Mushroom, Chestnut and Walnut Soup is a variation on an old classic from Good Housekeeping
10 Straight from the freezer, what could be easier! This Pea and Mint Soup is from Woman and Home.
