Warm up this winter with these cosy soups
As the weather cools, we look forward to footy season, snow holidays and cozy nights in by a roaring fire (or heater!). In the kitchen, winter means one thing – hot and hearty soups that taste delicious and warm you up from the inside.
Soup is as versatile as it is tasty. It can be served as a light lunch (don’t forget some toasted bread to dip), an appetiser when entertaining, or a hearty winter dinner for the family. You can also batch cook your favourite soups and freeze portions, ready to heat and eat at work, or for when you don’t have time to cook.
Not only are soups ideal to warm you up, but they are also a very healthy meal choice, packed with nutrients to boost your immune system and help ward off those dreaded winter cold and flu bugs. Eating soup is also a great way to get your daily quota of vegetables.
