You can tell winter is here when a) there is a queue for the microwave at work during lunch and b) it is made up mainly of soup!
I love soup and yes the supermarkets now stock a massive range, but there is something to be said for creating your own bubbling pot of lovely homemade soup! One of my colleagues has today come in with a homemade soup that epitomises homemade soup creation – it has a bit of everything she had at home – bacon, potatoes, carrots, onion, tinned tomatoes, pasta! It looks delicious and is certainly more appetising than the tomato and mascarpone soup I have in front of me!
It might even spur me into action to make my favourite soup – Spanish Chorizo and Chickpea – another Jamie Oliver great!
