Winter Warmer Recipe

It’s getting colder now and getting more expensive to heat our homes,  so what better (and greener) way to keep warm that a big bowl of home-made soup? This soup uses kitchen cupboard ingredients and is simple to make.

Home Energy Scotland is also there to help you keep warm and cosy this winter – all you have to do is call the free number on 0808 808 2222 for some tips and advice. I’ll definitely be giving them a buzz as there’s no doubt its cold outside now.  In the meantime, it’s the perfect excuse to make a delicious bowl of winter soup – one of my best tips for keeping warm and cosy.

Soups are a great warming meal as well as cheap to make, often using spare vegetables – so good for the purse and the environment.  This soup is easy to make and you can have a freshly prepared lunch in half an hour with extra serving to keep in the freezer as well.  So get the soup on, put your fluffy socks on and snuggle up on the couch.
