Winter + Soup = Perfection!

One of my favourite things about winter is cooking up batches of soup.  Everytime I see a soup recipe online that sounds tasty I do a mental check of what is in my cupboards to see if I can make it that night. I may be a little bit obsessed.  Most of the recipes that I have been finding lately are hanging out on my pinterest cooking board so I thought I would share some of my soup plans and some of the recipes I have already made so you can all give them a go too.  Click the photos to be taken to the recipes.
The Best Ever Tomato Soup

Chunky Vegetable Soup

Broccoli & Cheese Soup

These three recipes above I have tried and they were all delicious!  The tomato soup was my first time making tomato soup and it was seriously the most delicious tomato soup I have ever tasted.  The middle recipe I would prefer blended up after cooking but I didn't have a blender at the time that I made it.  Next time I will blend it I think.  Broccoli & Cheese soup was something that I had been wanting to try for ages but I wasn't sure if it would be any good.  After I heard a few people talking about it within a couple of weeks I decided to bite the bullet and give it a go.  I am sure glad I did.  It was amazing!

Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

Quick Chicken & Corn Chowder

These are the next three recipes on my list.  The chicken & corn chowder looks like such a quick and easy recipe to whip up.  I do need to buy a slow cooker though so I can try the first one. We had my sisters when she was living in Europe but we gave it back when she moved to Melbourne.  I think I definitely need one before bub comes along.  I think it will save my sanity!


  1. I love this recipe its quick and yummy. I like to cook the zucchini with the onion so its really soft.

    Chicken and zucchini soup
    Cook 1 chopped brown onion in a large saucepan until soft; add 3 cups chopped cooked chicken, 2 coarsely grated zucchini, 310g can creamed corn, 4 cups chicken stock and ½ cup cream. Stir until heated through.

  2. It's summertime here but I'm still big into soups despite the heat. Gazspacho is my current favorite!
