butternut squash

When you come home from work or college, there really is nothing better than digging into a hot bowl of soup on a cold night.

But now the question is, what soup to make?!

Here, we have five great soups that will feel like a hug in a mug. 

Roasted garlic Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup

It may be a mouthful to say, but once you actually take a mouthful of this soup, it will be like autumn in your mouth.


Brie and Cheddar Apple Beer Soup

It's beer soup. Nothing else needs to be said for this delicious concoction


Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup

If you want to make your Mexican chicken wraps that little bit more filling, you need to try this soup.


Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup

To be honest, this soup had us at 'bacon'.


Tuscan-Style Sausage, White Bean and Kale Soup

This soup will taste even better with a side of crusty bread and cheese. 


This salad would make the perfect light dinner for those of us who prefer bigger meals for lunch.

The sweetness of the roasted veg goes perfectly with the saltiness of the feta cheese.

What you’ll need: 

Serves 2

  • 2 beetroot
  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 parsnip
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 handfuls of watercress or rocket
  • 100g feta cheese

What you’ll need to do: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180.
  2. Chop all of the veg into bite-size pieces. Coat lightly in olive oil, pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Place the veg (squash, carrot, onion, parsnip and beetroot) into a roasting tin and put into the oven.
  4. Roast the veg for about 30-35mins or until softened. Reserve any juices or oils that are left in the tin.
  5. Arrange the leaves onto two plates and add the warm veg. Crumble the feta over the top.
  6. In a small bowl, mix the reserved juices with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
  7. Pour over the salads and enjoy!
