Winter veg soup

Just spotted this winter veg soup post from before Christmas still lurking in my drafts folder!
Winter is a great time for snuggling up with a warm bowl of soup. There is something cosy and hearty about it!

I used some roasted swede cubes as croutons on top of my winter veg soup.
Any spice or herbs could be used depending on your own preference. I added a little cayenne and coriander.
If you like a thinner veg soup then add a little more water during cooking.
For other soup recipes, take a look at my potato and leek soup, or celery soup, or carrot and coriander soup.

  1. Yum! Yum! I do love soups at this time of year.
    I am so glad I am not the one who buys pre chopped veg. Sometimes it is so much easier, especially the swede. That is a nightmare to chop.

  2. I need more soup in my life! You have reminded me I have one of those stick blender things so have inspired me to make my own. Lots of favourite healthy foods in this recipe too! #StayClassyMama
